Well I have done it, I signed up for my first ever Dash for Diabetes, a 5 mile/8 km run/jog/walk for the "curediabetesnow" campaign to raise money for children living with T1 in our local area as well as the Robarts Research Group. Even though I have not ran for numerous years now, I feel good about my decision. So today I am starting to get pledges as I prepare myself (and my dog) for the event, we are looking forward to meeting new people, raising money and awareness, and just having a great day for a great cause.
Thanks in advance for your support.

Hello Nel and everyone, sorry about the delay. The D4D went very well thanks you. I completed it with my wife,son & our loyal family dog. The course was 5mi/8km, we walked the course in 94 minutes. It was a beautiful day for the event with a decent turnout. While the count is still ongoing, the total on event day was we had raised over $2600,with the proceeds going to be donated to the Robarts Research Institute as well as local kids living with T1.

I wish you all the best for your event and hope it turns out to be a beautiful day for you's. Good Luck Nel.
