Diabetes won't stop me

After being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes last year, Jake hasn't stopped fundraising since.



Nine-year-old Jake has so far raised over £2,500 for Diabetes UK and JDRF.

Nine-year-old Jake was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes last year and since then has been continuously fundraising for Diabetes UK and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

In December of last year, Jake and his school took part in a Onesie Day and with his local Cubs Group raised £500 from a sponsored silence.

This year, Jake set himself a new challenge - swimming 65 lengths at his local swimming baths.

With great determination, and with the support of friends and family on the day, Jake successfully swam one mile in just 50 minutes. This means, Jake has so far raised over £2,000 for Diabetes UK and JDRF, with the £500 from his sponsored silence last year, Jake has raised £2,500 in total.
