Walkers brave windy weather to support diabetes research
WILD weather didn't deter keen Gladstone residents as about a dozen people strode against the wind yesterday morning as part of the JDRF Walk for a Cure at the Gladstone Marina.
The team was hoping to raise money and awareness of type 1 diabetes.
Organiser and mother Sue-Ellen Thompson said she was glad to see people prepared to brave the weather to show their support.
Ms Thompson's daughter Madison, 9, and son Jordan, 15, have both been diagnosed with the condition.
"It would have been good if more people turned up to show their support, but I'm proud people made the effort to come out today," Ms Thompson said.
