Sometimes it only takes a conversation between the right people for something wonderful to happen.

On this occasion the two people were Rob Palmer, TV personality & JDRF Ambassador, and Rick Lenarcic from Southern Cross Austereo (SCA). And the something wonderful is a brand new set of awareness TV and radio ads for JDRF, plus $1 million in airtime on SCA.

Of course it took much more than one conversation to bring this wonderful initiative to life, but that’s how it started.

The television and radio commercials will be run on the SCA network from this week, and will reach most of regional Australia on TV.

JDRF CEO Mike Wilson said the gift from SCA would have a powerful impact.

“Rick and Rob put their heads together, and the result is impressive. We’re truly grateful for the support, and delighted to be reaching so many Australians with our important messages about the reality of type 1 diabetes, and the need for funding for medical research.”

Watch the new TVCs for JDRF, starring Rob Palmer and produced with the kind support of Southern Cross Austereo.
