About

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune condition. It isn’t caused by a poor diet or an unhealthy lifestyle. For reasons not yet fully understood, George’s immune system attacked and destroyed the insulin-producing cells in his pancreas, called beta cells. Insulin is crucial to life. George wears an insulin pump to give his body the insulin it needs. He has over 2,500 needle pricks, injections, cannula and sensor inserts every year and he always puts up with it (well, almost always) with his big happy smile. He is our SUPERHERO!

Why do we support JDRF? Because they fund T1D research which improves lives; we believe that one day, within George’s lifetime, there will be a cure to this life-threatening and relentless condition.

We are running to fund research into diabetes technology which will help children avoid the long-term health complications associated with T1D.

T1D affects 400,000 people in the UK, with over 29,000 of them children. Incidence is increasing by about 4% each year particularly in children under five, with a 5% increase each year in this age group over the last 20 years

Event details

Oxford Half Marathon 2018 in aid of JDRF

With the help of my father I have formed a team of amazing friends who are running for my favourite charity: JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).  They include

James Robertson
Nick Farrington
Charlie Langley
Doug Nevill
Rachel Patterson
Clare Pritchard
Tom Stoddart-Scott
David Woolley

The Oxford Half Marathon 2018 is a 13.1 mile route through historic Oxford that kicks off from the City Centre. Running (hopefully) past world-famous museums, Oxford University, parks and more. 

The course begins on Broad Street, near Trinity College and the Clarendon Building. The route includes Old Marston, the River Cherwell, Oxford University’s Lady Margaret Hall, and finishes on Parks Road. 

Please give generously, thank you.
George
