On World Diabetes Day, we are announcing our next charity challenge, Kilimanjaro 2022 – A climb for the cure, in aid of our charity partners JDRF.
United Capital are really proud to have JDRF as our group charity partner. JDRF are a charity that funds research into type 1 diabetes, and over the years we have done various things to raise funds for them, including a 400km cycle from Vietnam to Cambodia, which company owners, Leanne and Graeme Carling completed in 2019.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin, which has saved millions of lives, so we want to do something extra special to raise awareness and funds for JDRF which does such important work all over the World.
In October 2022 we will be asking people to join us, the United Capital group, along with Leanne, Graeme and their kids, as we climb the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro. It will take around a week to complete the climb and descent and it will be an incredible experience, and we will be raising money for a really important cause.
You will hear more about this over the coming weeks and months, and if you fancy joining us, and are willing to commit to raise some funds for JDRF, keep an eye on our website www.united-capital.co.uk
