Sugar Surfing Winners!


Last week we announced that we had 4 copies of the book "Sugar Surfing - How to manage Type 1 Diabetes in a Modern World" to giveaway. Kevin McMahon, co-author of “Sugar Surfing” very kindly donated the 4 copies of the book to us. Kevin was one of our speakers at Thriveabetes 2015 in Maynooth. He is a diabetes dad, his daughter, Darby, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2001. The Thriveabetes team would like to extend their thanks to Kevin for this generous gift.

I would like to thank everyone who completed the survey to enter. The results were very interesting and we will publish them in the coming weeks. Sugar Surfing 1


And the winners are:


  • Teri Byrne
  • Ramona Lasch
  • Evelyn O'Leary
  • Cliodhna Hyland


Congratulations to all 4 and I will be in touch in the next couple of days to get your mailing addresses and get your copies of Sugar Surfing out to you.


I would also like to mention that in the coming weeks we will be running a Thriveabetes Fundraiser Raffle with free Thriveabetes Tickets on offer to volunteer ticket sellers. If you are interested in this opportunity please email me at

Or if you would like to donate a prize to add to the two fab prizes we already have?
