Fundraising for JDRF UK: 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon

I am incredibly excited to share with you that on 22nd April 2018 I’ll be running the London Marathon with JDRF UK!!

Participating in this event is something I’ve had on my bucket list to do for as long as I can remember and do to be able to do it alongside a charity that does some incredible work for Type 1 Diabetes is something I’ll be very honoured and proud to do!

The aim? To be able to inspire people living with Type 1 Diabetes that it is completely achievable to do anything you want whilst living with this condition.

And to raise a load of money for an amazing charity – this is where (I hope) you, my amazing readers, come in!

JDRF UK are a wonderful organisation that provide support, education and information to Type 1 Diabetics here in the U.K. and fund world class research that directly benefits people like me to make sure we’re getting the best care possible and help work towards a cure. I’ve worked with them many times before, been privileged enough to provide articles to their website and speak with their team continuously to help spread the amazing information and continued efforts to positively impact those with Type 1 Diabetes. I can not praise the work they do enough.

I’ve done half marathons, Tough Mudders, the Welsh Three Peaks challenge and participated in plenty of sporting events with Type 1 Diabetes but this will be on a whole other level! And I really cannot wait.

I’ll be documenting as much as I can through here on my blog, my Instagram (thehealthydiabetic) and on my Facebook Page ( to show how my preparation is going to run 26.2 miles through the greatest city in the world!

Please find the link below if you’d like to be incredibly generous and help me reach my goal of £2000. Any amount, small or large, will be MASSIVELY appreciated and I will be beyond grateful!!

Thank you SO SO SO much!!
