Walk to Cure Diabetes London

7 October 2012 (London)

Fundraise for JDRF by joining us on the Walk to Cure Diabetes in London

The London Walk and Run to Cure Diabetes in Victoria Park, East London is the perfect way to join other people passionate about finding the cure for type 1 diabetes. There will be a 5km walk and a 10km run, as well as a shorter walk and other activities, so get involved - everybody's invited! 

Everyone can Walk to Cure Diabetes

After a brief warm up runners will start the 10km course, with walkers starting the 5km walk 15 minutes later. We aim to make the day as inclusive as possible, so there’s also a shorter walk that’s perfect for little legs and pushchairs. Invite friends, family and colleagues to come along and help make your day a huge success!

Meet Rufus, the bear with type 1 diabetes 

At our Walk Village you’ll be able to take pictures with Rufus, the bear with type 1 diabetes. Bring along your own teddies and join us for our teddy bears’ picnic. There are plenty more activities such as live acoustic music, face painting, and giant board games too. Why not join in the fun and come in fancy dress to make it a truly memorable day.

Support every step of the way

You can be assured that we’ll help you fundraise for the Walk to Cure Diabetes every step of the way. We’ll email you Rufus themed fundraising ideas each week to help you reach a £100 goal. It’ll also give kids something to focus on during the summer holidays!
