MEMBERS of the WA Road Transport Association raised more than $5000 for diabetes research from their annual charity golf day at Joondalup Resort last month.

Diabetes Research WA executive director Sherl Westlund said the money raised would help the not-for-profit group support scientists.

WARTA chief executive Ian King said supporting Diabetes Research WA was a ‘win-win’.

‘Our fundraising helps Diabetes Research WA back world-leading WA research that has the potential to improve the health of millions of people and, in turn, that research and their understanding of all types of diabetes and the prevention of complications can help our members, many of whom are at increased risk of developing the condition,’ he said.
