National Diabetes Cup…We Need Your Help!

The National Diabetes Cup is a fantastic fun family day, and provides a great way for your son or daughter to meet and play with other young people living with Type 1 Diabetes.


For many of the young people who attend it’s not just about the soccer. A young girl who attended the 2016 Cup told us:


“I was just able to be myself.”


Why we need your help


The National Diabetes Cup is planned for Saturday 25th August, and costs €20,000 to run.


Last year due to a lack of funding we had to cancel the Cup.


So far we’ve managed to secure €10,000, but we need your help to raise the rest. Will you help us raise €10,000 to make sure this year’s National Diabetes Cup takes place?




There are lots of ways in which you can fundraise for us, including:


  • Take part in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon
  • Host a coffee morning
  • Organise a table quiz
  • Do something you consider a challenge whether it’s running a marathon, climbing a mountain or waxing your legs!
  • Make a donation at


Contact Jennifer Brennan, Fundraising Manager, at Diabetes Ireland today to register your support to fundraise and help us reach our €20,000 goal!
