DO Details

The Walk There are two Walk routes to choose from, 2km or 4km. Both Walks will start behind the primary school in Montagu Bay Reserve, a picturesque location with a child friendly park and spectacular views of Mount Wellington and the Tasman Bridge. The 4km Walk will go over the amazing Tasman bridge returning to the Walk Village along the same path.

For those not so keen or unable, the 2km Walk is shorter and flatter following paths along the magical waterfront. The 2km Walk is pram and wheelchair friendly, however dogs are not permitted on either of the walks. Join us before the Walk for breakfast with bacon and eggs rolls from 10.30am. After the Walk there will be a BBQ, face painting, Super Heroes, photo booth and loads of fun for the family. There will be some food options available on the day however we do encourage you to bring a healthy diabetes-friendly lunch with you along with chairs and picnic rugs to enjoy a day out with fellow Type 1 families and their friends. Getting to the Walk We recommend taking public transport to the venue. By bus: The Metro Bus stop is nearby. Please visit the Metro Tasmania website for more information. By car: There are plenty of free parking available at the venue. Thank you for your commitment to JDRF and we look forward to you joining in the fun of the Walk to Cure Diabetes!

DO Supports

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is the world's largest charitable supporter of type 1 diabetes research. JDRF was founded in 1970 in the US and 1982 in Australia by a group of determined volunteers. Internationally, JDRF has been involved in every major type 1 diabetes breakthrough of the last four decades. JDRF-funded researchers have driven the advancement of day-to-day disease management tools and accelerated the pace of research through a focus on four research priorities - immune therapies, beta cell therapies, glucose control therapies and complications therapies. JDRF supports Australian diabetes research via the strategic provision of funding, investing over $160 million into Australian research to date. In addition to supporting research, JDRF Australia plays a key role in advising and influencing health policy direction across all levels of government and building community awareness of type 1 diabetes. Throughout all local and international activities JDRF's mission remains constant - to find a cure for type 1 diabetes and its complications through the support of research.
