Paul Dearlove to take on father/daughter London Marathon challenge

Published on: 29th March 2018

Schleich’s trade marketing manager is raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

With just over three weeks to go, Schleich’s trade marketing manager, Paul Dearlove, and his teenage daughter, Neve, are adding the finishing touches to their training ahead of next month’s London Marathon.

In the UK there are over 400,000 people living with Type 1 Diabetes, including both Paul and Neve, who are running on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF); a charity dedicated to finding a cure for, and improving the lives of, all those who battle this devastating condition.

Between them, Paul and Neve have clocked up nearly 40,000 insulin injections, but as Paul was quick to point out: “For sure it makes life harder with daily worries over what to eat and constantly monitoring blood sugar levels, but by running this marathon together, we hope to prove that diabetes doesn’t stop you doing anything in life.”

They hope to raise over £4,000 for JDRF, with the funds going towards finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes.

Paul commented: “JDRF is a charity very close to our family’s hearts and the London Marathon is the perfect event to prove that we don’t let this condition effect our daily lives. To support the charity in the hope that they will one day find a cure is more than enough to get us through.”
