Raising funds for a good cause
At the end of the challenge, my fundraising went berserk. People were donating £50 and £100 at a time. It hits home then that you’ve done something special; that you must have touched a few people having raised £911.91.
There’s always a need for research into diabetes. I think the money I’ve raised will be used wisely and will hopefully make the lives of people living with diabetes easier. I also hope it will help promote exercise and prevention of type 2 diabetes.
I think prevention is very important. I’ve met people through this challenge who have turned their type 2 diabetes around. I keep telling my partner he could achieve remission too. I also want to do as much as I can to prevent myself from getting type 2 diabetes.
