Diabetes UK
Diabetes UK

Diabetes UK are delighted to be the official charity partner of the Simplyhealth Great Run Series 2019. We are leading the fight against the most devastating and fastest growing health crisis of our time, to create a world where diabetes can do no harm. There are currently 4.6 million people living with diabetes in the UK, and 12.3 million at risk of developing Type 2. Diabetes affects more people than any other serious health condition in the UK. More than dementia and cancer combined. That means we need to take action now. It's a fight that involves all of us – sharing knowledge and taking diabetes on together. Until we achieve our vision. Join the team and get amazing support and an unforgettable experience. If you have any questions get in touch on 0345 123 2399 or email us: events.fundraising@diabetes.org.uk. We can’t wait to welcome you to our team.
