Aldergrove fundraiser focuses on Type 1 diabetes

A variety of activities is planned this Sunday at Alder Alley by Julia Pahlke, to raise awareness of Type 1 diabetes.

Julia Pahlke is mounting a fundraising event to strike back against Type 1 diabetes.

It takes place on Sunday, Jan. 26 at Alder Alley, 27070 Fraser Hwy., in Aldergrove, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Pahlke is a registered nurse and Type 1 diabetic. This month marks her 10-year anniversary of battling Type 1 diabetes, something that affects more than 300,000 people in Canada.

She is inviting friends, family and the community to come and support her successful completion of her goal to have no health complications from diabetes after 10 years. She has received help from technology created by the immense support from organizations like the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

The event will raise awareness about Type 1 diabetes while collecting donations for the research that leads to prevention, better treatment and ultimately a cure.

A fun night of bowling, silent auction, trivia and more is planned.

To donate online to this worthwhile campaign, visit http://jdrfca.donordrive.com and search Strike Back Against Type 1 Diabetes. Tickets are $25 each and can be arranged by contacting her  at  julia_pahlke@hotmail.ca.
