Creating healthy bodies and healthy minds, one step at a time!

Schools Triathlon Challenge to help raise funds for Diabetes Tasmania.

Diabetes Tasmania has been a partner of the Schools Triathlon Challenge for 5 years and this year as part of our partnership we are aiming to raise some much needed funds.

Diabetes Tasmania runs through its Type One Youth Support (TOYS) program, camps for kids and young adults which are an important part of learning to deal with having a chronic illness.

A Kid In Your Life program is run so that secondary carers (for example grandparents, aunts and uncles) will feel more confident looking after a young family member with type 1.

Setting up your own fundraising page is simple and in doing so you will be doing a great community service by helping raise funds that will go directly towards helping improve somebody else’s quality of life – all funds raised will stay within Tasmania. The STC offers you with an opportunity to establish your own healthy lifestyle and now it opens up the door for you to help others too.

Please consider taking fundraising on as a part of your Schools Triathlon Challenge experience this year and hopefully we can build this into a significant fundraiser over the next few years.

It’s very simple once your page is set up you can send out your link to all your contacts / parents contacts, social media or email and get people to donate towards your fundraising effort. In return you can tell them that you will be putting in your very best performance at this year’s Schools Triathlon Challenge. 

Don’t forget that 20% of all money raised by YOUR school will come back to the school to use as they wish!    

This year there will also be on offer some wonderful prizes on offer for you!

OUR TOTAL GOALS this year, with your help are:

$3,270.00 will help us send two participants to diabetes camp

$6,000.00 will help send four families to diabetes camp

$9,870.00 will help us send six participants to diabetes camp

By helping us raise these totals you can go into the draw for these fantastic prizes, depending on the amount you raise:
