Step it up this summer
Take a giant step for people with diabetes and a million little ones for yourself by taking on the One Million Step Challenge.
You’ll need to take an average of at least 10,000 steps a day to be successful. But how you do them and where you do them is completely up you.
Whether it’s shuffling home from the shops, hiking up a hill, or getting down on the dancefloor, they all count.
The money you raise while you do it will fund our fight for a world where diabetes can do no harm.
Your fundraising will pay for our scientists to make the next big breakthrough, make our next life-changing campaign a reality and means we can be there for people with diabetes when they need us.
