Olympic Torch Relay!!!

I am SO excited!!!!

In December 2011, I received an email saying I was one of 8,000 (out of 28,000 nominations!) selected and given a conditional offer to be an Olympic Torch Bearer for the London 2012 Olympics!!

My slot apparently is on Monday the 16th July 2012, in between Portsmouth and Brighton!

We get 100% confirmation some time this month, as they’re just finishing up doing security checks and verifying that all stories are genuine. I was nominated for my involvement with JDRF and doing my various speeches and fundraising, so yet again I find myself thanking JDRF for letting me be involved with these events.

I shall let you guys all know when I get my email from London 2012, confirming 100% for definite sometime this month. Until then thanks for all your support, I’m absolutely honoured to have been nominated, let alone selected!

The other good news is that a few other delegates also going along to Type 1 Parliament have been selected too. Which is fantastic news and will hopefully support our cause even further when talking to MPs in Westminster.

Massive thanks again to JDRF!

  1. Amy: Hope you’re well. I’m a U.S.-based type 1 (diagnosed at age 5 back in 1984) and work at DiabetesMine.com, and we’re writing about the Olympic torchbears who are also living with diabetes. If you’re able to connect in the next day, I’d LOVE to include your thoughts about your experience today for a post we have set for Thursday. Please don’t hesitate to reach out by Twitter, and you can find my contact details online there or at D’Mine! Thanks! Much appreciate what you do!!
