This summer, push yourself out of your comfort zone and take 1 million steps over the course of 3 months and get sponsored for every stride.

Walk it. Jog It. Dance it. The choice is yours. You will need to take at least 10,000 steps a day to reach your million, so do it your way.  You can take on the challenge alone, or better still, get your family, friends and colleagues involved. You can even split the million steps between a team and fundraise together.

However you take part, you’ll step towards a healthier you and a future where diabetes can do no harm.At the moment it does too much. 

Each week thousands of people in the UK suffer heart attacks, heart failure, stroke, amputation and blindness because of their diabetes. 

But when people manage their diabetes well they can avoid these life-threatening complications and stay healthy. We provide information, care and support for everyone with diabetes so they can manage their condition well. 

Our campaigns improve life for people with diabetes while our research develops new treatments, technologies and will, one day, find a cure.

But we need your help to do it. That’s where you and your fundraising come in. It’s time to step up for people with diabetes.Here’s how your fundraising could help:

£12 could respond to a query from our helpline.

£78 could keep the Helpline open for 1 hour. 

£100 could pay for the genetic test needed to determine which type of diabetes someone has.

£200 could pay for enough lab ‘consumables’ like gloves, tubes, pipettes and solutions, needed for one month of research.

Registration is free and we'll be here to support you every step of the way.
