Diabetes UK Northern Ireland is delighted to be working with the Banbridge Athletics Club and Armagh City, Banbridge and Craigavon Council for the Bann 10k and Fun Run taking place on Wednesday 24 May 2017. Events such as these are a fun way to get involved and get active; helping your body feel the benefit. Exercise can help manage your diabetes and plays an important role in delaying or preventing Type 2 diabetes.

Diabetes UK Northern Ireland will be looking for volunteers to help at the event. If you would be interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
