Diabetes UK is looking for people from Cornwall to push themselves out of their comfort zone with the One Million Step challenge.
The challenge is to take one million steps over three months between 1 July and 30 September and get sponsored for every stride.
The One Million Step Challenge is perfect if you want to take steps towards a healthier you. You can take on the challenge alone or, better still, get your family, friends and colleagues involved. You can walk it, jog it or dance it – it’s up to you. The money you raise while you do it will fund our fight for a world where diabetes can do no harm.
Diabetes is a condition where there is too much glucose in the blood because the body cannot use it properly. Each week thousands of people suffer heart attacks, kidney failure and amputations because of their diabetes. But when people manage their diabetes well, they can avoid these life-threatening complications and stay healthy.
Diabetes UK provides information, care and support for everyone with diabetes – and for their family and friends. Our campaigns improve life for people with diabetes, while our research develops new treatments and technologies and will, one day, find a cure.
To register for the One Million Step Challenge, please visit www.diabetes.org.uk/step. It’s free to sign up and there is no minimum sponsorship target. We just ask that you raise as much as you can to support people living with diabetes.
