LISA’S LEAP OF FAITH FOR DIABETES RESEARCH

Lisa Bonnici will be jumping out of a plane with Goolwa Skydive on Saturday, March 19 with up to 50 other enthusiasts, all in the name of fundraising.

Jump to Cure Diabetes is the latest and certainly most exhilarating event to help find a cure for type one diabetes.
Funds raised will help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) support the best diabetes research in Australia.
According to Lisa, of Hewett, this research is vitally needed, as Australia has one of the highest rates of type one diabetes in the world, with new cases growing by 3 per cent every year in Australian children.
“This experience of a lifetime will be the first time in Australia that such a large group of people, have all joined in a tandem skydive on the same day in support of diabetes research,” she said.
Ms Bonnici has had type one diabetes since she was three and said she  was hoping to raise enough funds to participate in this event and to help spread the word about type one diabetes.
“Taking part in this event is not only the ultimate challenge for themselves but a chance to help find a cure for type one diabetes,” she said.
