We are fighting to make a world where diabetes does no harm


Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

First of all, I'm not a runner or a sports person. At school I was so bad at sports and (don't tell the parents) but sometimes wrote notes to get myself out of P.E. sessions. Sorry Mum & Dad! But...when this opportunity came up to raise money for such a special cause in memory of a very special lady, Emily, there was no way I could say no.

Emily passed away in her sleep aged 29 from the effects of Type I Diabetes in April 2012; she was a colleague and fellow therapist in mental health services; an extremely inspiring and talented one.

There are 15 of us (family, friends, colleagues) who have become 'Team Em and Me' (TEAM). We are determined to do the best we can to raise as much money as possible in her name and for all those out there who suffer from Diabetes. This is where you are needed! Please donate to the cause - every penny helps - and a big THANK YOU in advance!

As I write this, there's only a week to go now, and it's been an emotional and physical rollercoaster, through snow and rain, injury, and a whole load of ups and downs.

One more BIG PLEASE - please donate to this amazing cause - you don't know how much it would be appreciated! Anna x
