Diabetes Ireland

Why Run For Us?

Serving People with Diabetes Since 1967

Diabetes Ireland is a national charity dedicated to helping people with diabetes.  We acheive this by providing Support, Education and Motivation to our community.  Diabetes Ireland also raises public awareness of diabetes and its symptoms and supports, and funds research related to the causes, prevention, and cure of diabetes.

Information and Education

Last year, over 200,000 people accessed our information service either online or by contacting our helpline. Many others attended our education programmes, workshops, and webinars. In 2023, we need your support to continue our work in providing you with up-to-date information on all aspects of diabetes.

Family Events

We plan to hold our summer picnics and other events for young children diagnosed with diabetes over the past few years and their families, providing them with an opportunity to meet each other in a family fun environment.

All funds will go back into services, supporting people and their families with diabetes.

Race Day Support

We will be with you every step of the way on your fundraising journey and all our runners will receive a Diabetes Ireland T-shirt to proudly display on race day
