First off, I am running for Diabetes UK because it’s an absolutely brilliant cause and one I have a close connection too. Last month my Dad was diagnosed with diabetes, and my Granddad lived with diabetes for the best part of 17 years, during which time my Nan did so much to look after him.
But sadly my nan passed away in May and my Granddad passed away in July this year, so the run has now taken on extra significance for me. As a result i will now be running in the memory of both of my Grandparents who did so much to make me the man that i am today. I will have both of thier names on my shirt when i do the run so that they can both cross the line with me.
Any donation, no matter how big or small will make a huge difference and will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
