Will and Luke raise money for type one diabetes
Local resident, Will Maher, is raising money for the Type One Fun Run 2017 TOFR. Will was diagnosed in 2011 at the age of two with type one diabetes. Now eight year old made a heart-wrenching comment on his TOFR funding page, stating “I want to raise money because when I eat I don’t want to need insulin any more. I don’t want any more needles or finger pricks and I want to feel like everyone else, please help me find a cure!” Will isn’t alone in raising money for the TOFR, his five year old brother, Luke, has also set-up a page, stating “because I love him I want to raise money so they can find a cure so he can get better.” The boys will combine their run with the annual Rylstone Public School Cross Country in May. To donate money, visit everydayhero.com.au/event/typeonefunrun2017 and search for Will Maher or Luke Maher.
