09 May Diviya & Simran Swim 22
An update on our 2 amazing colleagues, Diviya and Simran who took the challenge to swim 22 miles between February 22nd and May 22nd. This length is the equivalent of swimming the English Channel.
2 weeks left of their challenge, and the girls are pushing to get to the 22 miles mark. Diviya has recently come back from a lovely 2 week break in Vietnam; and unfortunately couldn’t swim while she was travelling. She has close to 9 miles left in order to complete the challenge of 22 miles, but we know she can do it! Simran currently has just over 1 mile to complete before she gets to her 22 mile target.
This challenge was done as part of a coordinated effort with Diabetes UK, a charity that aims to raise awareness and prevent people from this terrible condition. Diabetes UK makes sure people can manage their diabetes well. They provide information, care and support for everyone affected by diabetes. Their campaigns improve lives. Their research develops new treatments, technologies and will (hopefully) one day, find a cure.
But there is more work to be done. They need our help to reach more of the 4.5 million people living with diabetes in the UK. Every length people taking part in completing, and every pound they raise – will get Diabetes UK closer to their vision of a world where diabetes can do no harm.
Diviya and Simran aimed to raise £500 from this challenge. They have currently made £200, and are eyeing the £500 target! To support them visit their Just Giving page:
