Diabetes Week

Date: 9 Jun 2014

Diabetes Week is Diabetes UK’s annual awareness and fundraising week, and this year it will take place from Sunday 8 to Saturday 14 June.

i Can

This year the Diabetes Week theme is ‘i Can’. We know that diabetes can sometimes feel like an uphill battle – this Diabetes Week we want your stories of all the things you can do, and the challenges you’ve overcome.

When things have got tough, what have been the things you can do to get through it? What will you never let diabetes stop you from doing? Or if you support someone with diabetes, how do you help them along the way?

From 8–14 June, Diabetes UK would like you to share your stories of courage and hope in the face of diabetes on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #iCan. And don't forget to tag, @diabetesuk, so they can join in the conversation.

Remember – they want to make as much noise as possible during Diabetes Week, and a thousand voices are louder than one. So, for now, get thinking about the sort of story you might like to share, and get it ready to post it online during the week itself.

In the meantime, there are lots of ways you can support Diabetes Week
