The “Running for Diabetes” programme has been operating since 2019, promoting wellbeing and inclusion for more than 300 people with diabetes ever since. With a team of highly experienced professionals, we offer a multidisciplinary approach – walking and running training, yoga classes, diabetes education mentoring, roundtables with peers and webinars with experts from different areas to promote a safe, inclusive and empowering environment. More than that, the programme aims to fill the gap of loneliness and social exclusion due to the low self-esteem, diabetes distress and lack of diabetes education people living with diabetes face, especially in marginalised communities. The programme’s heart is all about empathy and sharing.
