Reason for Nomination
Lochlan is 13 years old and has lived with type 1 diabetes since four. Lochlan is a keen and talented footballer who finds playing sport a way to escape from the daily hard work of living with type 1. Lochlan broke his leg aged 9 which led him to organise a Charity Event called Lochlan's Stadium Marathon which he completed in April 2019 and raised £10,500 for JDRF and Kris Boyd Charity.
The success led to Lochlan, aged 11, setting up Lochlan's Legacy-SCIO. His own Charity which aims to raises awareness and understanding of Type 1 Diabetes, breaksdown barriers and reduce stigma.
Lochlan prides himself on telling the truth about Type 1, the good and the bad. He wants all young people to have access to sport and ensure all coaches and referees have an understanding of the condition. What a 13 year old!
