Nicco’s Fundraising Challenge

by Lorenzo Piccoli

This is Nicco and his new slogan is Let’s turn diabetes type 1 into type none!

Nicco was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes three years ago. Now he wants to complete an olympic triathlon whilst fundraising for JDRF. As he says, this gives him motivation, strength, and sense of purpose. On August 8, he will be running the London Triathlon 2021 to fundraise for JDRF UK, a global organisation funding research on treatment and cure of type 1 diabetes.

If you would like to support JDRF in their work and the broader type 1 diabetes community, please give a donation through Nicco’s JustGiving page.

Update, August 17: Nicco finished the London Triathlon in 2 hours and 43 minutes. Read about it on his Facebook post.
