Diabetes UK

We provide the vital support people need to ensure they don’t face diabetes alone.

Story

Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. On December 2nd 2007 I ran my first ever Half Marathon in aid of Diabetes UK along with my friend and running partner Scott Young in a time of 2hr 26:44 . I have two family members who were diagnosed with (type 1) Insulin dependent diabetes in early childhood. Their medication regime means that they can sometimes take between four and six injections in one day. At present there is no cure for this type of diabetes which can lead to long-term complications such as Amputation Kidney Failure and Blindness. As scientists develop a deeper understanding of the disease; funding for breakthrough research has never been more important than at this critical time. 

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor me: Diabetes UK will receive your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, an extra 28% in tax will be added to your gift at no cost to you.

So please sponsor me now!

Please dig deep and sponsor me online.

Many thanks for your support.
