Story

I'm taking on a £20-challenge to celebrate the 20-year anniversary of the  Independent Diabetes Trust.

The challenge involves running from Market Harborough to Northampton along the Brampton Valley Way on Saturday, June 7.  

Although I play a lot of sport, the most I have ever run is five kilometres, so I’ve let myself in for a quite a challenge.

The IDDT work tirelessly in the name of people with diabetes, helping to make their lives easier. I am a dedicated supporter and am proud to be taking on this challenge.

The Northampton-based charity has launched the campaign to help guarantee the continuation of its work providing vital independent support for people with diabetes, their parents and carers.

The charity formed in 1994 to fight for choice of insulin for all. It now provides a free, confidential helpline, has published dozens of helpful publications, stages events and lobbies the government on behalf of its members.

 It is estimated that more than one in 20 people in the UK has diabetes (diagnosed or undiagnosed). There are 2.9 million people who have been diagnosed with diabetes in the UK. By 2025, it is estimated five million people will have diabetes in the UK.
