We just need a few hundred more people to sign up and we will have over 6,000 'Get Serious' supporters.
The Get Serious campaign aims to underline the seriousness of diabetes and is all about strength in numbers. We're aiming to get as many of our supporters as possible to sign up and show their commitment to Get Serious about diabetes.
Help make diabetes a priority
“By signing up, you join a community that is fighting one of the UK’s biggest health challenges," said Douglas Smallwood, Chief Executive at Diabetes UK (pictured).
"Each person who signs up to Get Serious brings us one step closer to making diabetes a priority for everyone."
"And with more people signed up to the campaign, the greater power we will have to influence key decision makers in the UK and ensure diabetes is made a top priority for 2010 and beyond", said Douglas.

Because half a million people in the UK have Type 2 diabetes and don’t even know it; because three people die from diabetes-related complications every hour; because one person is diagnosed with diabetes every three minutes; because of all of this we are asking people to join in our campaign and Get Serious about diabetes.
The campaign is being supported by entertainer Christopher Biggins, who has Type 2 diabetes. Other celebrity supporters of the campaign include Sir Steve Redgrave, Dominic Littlewood, Cheryl Fergison, Steve Dixon, Eamonn Holmes, Amy Lamé, Phillip Schofield and Paul O'Neill.
Please note that this campaign has now closed, and the microsite is no longer available.
