Believe in a Cure – Diabetes Gala Rockin for Research with Loverboy

By Catherine Barr

Hear the personal story of a mother turned gala chair who 'Believes' in a cure for Type 1 diabetes

Do you believe in a cure for diabetes? If the answer if ‘yes’ then you’ll want to tune in to hear Rockin’ for Research gala chair Stephanie Orr talk about this year’s event which once again included an appearance by rock legends Loverboy – who helped kick it all off 21 years ago.

This year’s theme was ‘Believe’ – and despite Covid-19 restrictions, this amazing fundraising effort meant everyone was working to help turn ‘Type 1 into Type None’.

Virtual gatherings are the new successful way to raise money during this pandemic, and this year’s gala didn’t disappoint. Gift boxes, auction items and a live performance by the band itself, all helped make it as glamorous as ever.

Also hear the personal and heart-warming story of Stephanie’s own experiences as a mother of two adult children who have fought so hard against this disease. Inspirational and educational, the giving doesn’t stop.
