JDRF's September 12th charity run update!

On the 16th July, I was enthusiastically promoting the first of two JDRF charity walks/runs that were taking place over September and November. As mentioned before, all money raised was going to an amazingly worthy cause as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation raise so much money to help support those affected and, of course, find a cure for type 1 diabetes.

So, backtracking to Sunday 12th September, the London Walk/Run to Cure Diabetes went ahead without a hitch and we navigated around the beautiful Regent’s Park to deliver tasty, energizing fruit gifts for all those participating!

A whopping 750 people turned up to take part, either by walking or running to raise money, and that figure doesn’t count the amazing amount of people that came along to offer amazing support (and maybe the odd heckle!) Everyone had beaming smiles on their faces - despite it being an early Sunday morning - because as luck would have it, the sun was on our side and made it an even better day!

Overall, the day was an amazing success and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is set to have raised an astounding £120,000!

All of us here at Fruit for the Office are so proud to have supported and been part of such a spirit-raising day and to contribute to an incredible event for an equally incredible cause!
