Fundraise For Us

Diabetes Ireland provides support, information, care and a range of services to help improve the lives of those affected by diabetes, but we can only do it with your fundraising support. Each year we need to raise €2 million to ensure we can deliver on this promise.


Help us and fundraise for Diabetes Ireland by getting involved in one or more of the events listed below. Or create your own! We’ll help you in whatever way we can and will provide you with all the advice and resources you need to fundraise.
