about the challenge
Get sponsored to walk 10 miles for Diabetes UK.
It has never been more important for us to take care of our wellbeing and - now that we can spend a bit more time outdoors - it’s important that we keep active. My Wellness Walk will give you a fitness goal to work towards, as well as the space and time to reconnect with what’s important in life. Walk 10 miles in a day and raise money for Diabetes UK.
With every step, you’ll be funding our life-changing research and helping us provide essential care for those affected by diabetes. Not only will you be walking for your wellbeing, but also for the wellbeing of people living with diabetes, including those we love.

why take part?
Whatever your reason for taking part in My Wellness Walk, it’s a great step towards a healthier you. Walking is good for us because we burn calories, it’s easy to fit into our day and it’s low impact on our joints. Physical exercise and spending time in nature can reduce stress, lift your mood and improve sleep. And taking on our Wellness Walk challenge gets you together with a friendly community that’s changing the world for people with diabetes.
why your support matters?
By taking on a Wellness Walk and being sponsored to walk 10 miles in a day you’ll be supporting us to help thousands of people living with diabetes feel a little healthier, and get even more out of life every single day. One of the ways in which we do this is through our helpline – we provide specialist information and advice on all aspects of living with diabetes. We are on call to provide answers, support or just to talk to someone who knows about diabetes.
