I've created this page because I want to make a difference. I'm inspired by the work of Diabetes Ireland and wanted to support them by raising money. Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about Diabetes Ireland, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
I will attempt to open a new road of travel between France and Ireland “the Kitesurf Road”.
Travelling around 15/17 knots per hour, my mission is to kitesurf across the waves in less than 16 hours and make a “splash of cash” for Diabetes Ireland in the process.
The “Kitesurf Road” is 275 miles long and has never been completed, although previously attempted by others, and this clearly sets out the “daunting challenge”. On top of this I will be managing my blood glucose and insulin levels on the board for the duration of the attempt, which just adds greater difficulty to the challenge.
