Diabetes NZ Wairarapa branch member Peter Caldwell is planning to set off on 1 January and cycle the length of New Zealand to raise awareness of diabetes and raise funds for Diabetes Wairarapa.
Peter was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes eight years ago. His vision is to highlight the fact that many people like him are affected by diabetes and that with good management, weight control, and regular exercise, people with diabetes can lead normal and full lives.
Peter’s aim is to raise $50,000. Sponsorship is easy from as little as 1 cent per km. Donations can be made via givealittle.co.nz/cause/cyclefordiabetes
