Diabetes is close to my heart as many of my close relations have diabetes.
With this in mind I have decided that myself and my lovely niece Leah ( who is Diabetic herself) will aim to raise enough funds for the two of us to take part in this fundraiser.
This involves walking up to 6 hours per day six days in a row so come on and support us with a donation – every little helps 🙂 You can donate toward the trip directly via Paypal using the Donate Button Below:
