1 Million Steps Challenge Complete! in Norwich, Norfolk

Posted 17/10/2017

Jo, one of our commercial account handlers here at Drayton, has walked her way to raising over £300 for Diabetes UK!

Over 3 months, she walked, ran and Zumba'd an average of over 11,000 steps a day.. a grand total of £1,030,000 altogether.

With just under 4 million people in the UK suffering with diabetes, and Jo herself having lived with Type 1 for over 15 years, she knows first hand how important fundraising is for the charity. She said: "With my mum, my brother and I being diagnosed with type 1, we know how hard it can be to live with the condition but the hope that there may one day be a cure is what keeps us going."

"I decided to do the challenge not only to raise money for the charity and raise awareness but to also try and improve my fitness! It was most certainly more of a challenge than I first thought, it would be but I'm so pleased to have completed it!"

It's not too late to donate! Any donation, big or small, can make a huge difference. Find out how to support Jo here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/JoHarris94
