|Around U an all round success|
Scores of young people take part in events around the UK
Young people with diabetes across the UK have enjoyed four action packed days out sponsored by Bayer Diabetes Care.
During the summer holidays more than 160 young people with diabetes between the ages of six and 16 took part in Bayer’s Around U sports days. Four Around U days were organised; two football events at Glasgow Celtic FC’s training ground in Scotland, and the London Soccerdome; and a further two dance events at City-Limits Dancentre in Sheffield and London’s Pineapple Dance Studios.
The aim of the Around U events was to demonstrate to the young people that although they may have diabetes, it should not stop them having fun. Around U is supported by leading community website Diabetes.co.uk, as well the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).
