Kai and Prosper Fundraising for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation)
On the 7th June 2011 CCH junior member Kai Watts(9) was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. He has not let Type 1 diabetes stop him in any way at all. Three days after being diagnosed and starting on insulin injections up to 7 times a day and blood glucose tests Kai was back on his bike cycling for Cycling Club Hackney. After 6 months Kai got his insulin pump and enjoys the best of new technology.
Prosper (Kai’s dad) has set a challenge with Kai to complete 3,000miles in a mixture of races, long distance rides and sponsored events during the next 12 months please sponsor them to support JDRF. JDRF is the leading organization in the UK for Type 1 diabetes - finding a cure and new technology please sponsor Kai and Prosper so to help JDRF with their work! Please have a look at Kai & Prosper’s Just giving page.... thank you for your time.
So far Kai and Prosper have completed 734 miles between them in 12 weeks. Including regular high beech trips, London to Cambridge and Brighton to Beachy Head.
Kai met a Sanoffi Team Type one cyclist at the east of england diabetes sports day a couple of weeks ago and apparently Team Type one are hoping to get into the Tour of Britain next year - brilliant role models for Kai.
