Fundraise For Us

Diabetes Ireland provides support, information, care and a range of services to help improve the lives of those affected by diabetes. However, we can only achieve this with your support. Each year we need to raise €2 million to continue to deliver on our promise. The majority of this money comes from our amazing fundraisers! Fundraise for us to help us grow our services and positively impact the diabetes community in Ireland.


Get involved in one or more of the events listed below. Or create your own! We’re here to help you in any way that we can. Email us for all the advice and support needed to run a great fundraiser!
