Walk to a diabetes cure

PEOPLE can not walk off juvenile diabetes, but residents can take part in a walk for a cure.

The Malouf Pharmacy North Bundaberg has organised its annual walk to raise funds for research for type one diabetes.

Organiser Sharon Grono said not everyone understood the disease and people were reluctant to support it.

“More and more children are being diagnosed with it,” she said.

“Hopefully we can find a cure and help a lot of people out.”

She said if the pharmacy was raising funds for another charity like cancer it would have plenty of support.

“It’s been hard to get donations,” she said.

The walk will take place on Sunday, October 17 at Hinkler botanical gardens at North Bundaberg from 9am.

Participants can register for a gold coin donation at the pharmacy before the event or on the day.
