Our employees in the UK have signed up for the Dixons Carphone 'Race to the Stones', a 100km walk across the Ridgeway that is taking place on 14th and 15th July, 2018. We are embarking on this challenge to raise money for Diabetes UK and support them in their mission to help the millions of people living in the UK with diabetes.
Ascensia is a company that is committed to helping people living with diabetes by simplifying and improving their lives, which is why we have chosen to raise money for Diabetes UK, as they are a charity that will directly help people living with diabetes.
There is also significance to the choice of the Dixons Carphone 'Race to the Stones', as the we wanted to fundraise in a way that was meaningful for people with diabetes. Diabetes is a long-term condition and is not easy to manage. As an endurance challenge, we feel that the Dixons Carphone 'Race to the Stones' symbolizes the long-term challenges faced by people living with diabetes and how they have to overcome difficulties throughout their care.
Watch out for more updates from our fundraising and the race itself.
