During 2023, the Catholic Women’s League in Aoteareoa New Zealand is raising awareness and fundraising for Diabetes New Zealand’s youth programmes.
Diabetes NZ is the CWLANZ Mission At Home recipient this year.
The CWL national president, Susan Dickson, is embarking on an energetic sponsored campaign.
Susan and her husband Bruce have entered in the Midnight Sun Half Marathon, which will take place on June 17 in Tromso, Norway.
They are planning to raise lots of money for “Diabetes NZ with Every Step!” The money raised will go to support young people at an annual camp.
