Over 1,000 Get Serious in first week

By the end of the first week of the Get Serious campaign, more than 1,000 people had logged on, signed up and made pledges for Diabetes UK.

In making diabetes a priority, our supporters are starting to help us raise the profile of how serious diabetes is and how, as one collective voice, we can fight the UK’s biggest health challenge.

Community grows

The Get Serious community continues to grow each day along with the variety of pledges. From mountain climbing, creating a sports club and encouraging families to eat better, organising an awareness event and learning to salsa dance, the pledges have started to be made.

Join us and Get Serious. Have a look to see what others are pledging to do, do something similar, or come up with our own idea – and let us know what you decide so we can add it to the website.


“Having so many people join up in the first week has been amazing," said Paul McDonald, Head of Media at Diabetes UK.

Sign up, and encourage friends and family too

“Let’s keep the pressure up and get as many people as possible to support the campaign. If you’ve already signed up, please encourage your friends and family to sign up too. Perhaps you could pledge to do something as a group? Whatever you do - get involved.”

Please note that this campaign has now closed, and the microsite is no longer available.
