Thank you to everyone who took part in the 2017 Happy Feet
On 18 March 2017, Diabetes Queensland joined forces with
Bushwalking Queensland to in a hike along the 12km Box Forest
Circuit in the Lamington National Park.
Team Diabetes Queensland raised over $6,000 for Queenslanders
living with diabetes. Team KJ was the top fundraising team and the
highest individual fundraiser was Kerrie Swindley.
Fourteen supporters took part; some with type 1 and type 2
diabetes, while others were family and friends of people living
with all types of the condition.
The hikers crossed waterfalls and battled leeches and mud. They
encouraged one another to reach the end, and shared what diabetes
meant to them. It was an incredibly supportive experience.
"I had such a great, enjoyable experience, you all were so
lovely and made me, and my parents feel very welcome. I
am definitely feeling the calves and hamstrings at the moment, but
a very good sore."
