Story

My Mum and Dad both have diabetes, my Dad has just found out there are complications with his and I want to help raise money to help with the research that will ultimately help understand this condition. My brother's fiancée has type 1 diabetes and I am probably going to get diabetes if I don't address my own fitness. This challenge will benefit those I love, those I don't know and motivate me to get my fitness level back to where it was before I started suffering with back problems after a serious injury.

Diabetes UK is the charity leading the fight against the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time, creating a world where diabetes can do no harm. Its a fight that involves all of us sharing knowledge and taking diabetes on together.

So if you can help, any small amount will be gratefully received.
