in Victoria (YLC), tackling diabetes together.

An enthusiastic group of young professionals is raising funds for the institute’s type 1 diabetes research, hosting a Bowls and BBQ fundraising event in April.

The Young Leadership Committee for Type 1 Diabetes in Victoria (YLC), a volunteer-run group, will donate all funds raised through the event to the institute’s type 1 diabetes research programs.

Ms Natalia Sampaio, a YLC member and institute researcher, said how important it was for the group to know exactly where their donations were going.

"The institute was able to tell us that the proceeds from our event will directly support type 1 diabetes."

“We’re glad that the institute was able to tell us that the proceeds from our event will directly support type 1 diabetes research,” Ms Sampaio said.

The event’s $35 entry fee gets you an afternoon of unlimited lawn bowls and catering by Burn City Smokers, with drinks available for purchase at the bar.
