The annual Walk the Extra Mile event in Sophia Gardens has been confirmed for Sunday 13th June 2010.

The two mile walk is in aid of Diabetes Week 2010 and money raised goes to Diabetes UK Cymru who provide help, support, advice and information for people living with diabetes across Wales and their families.

More than 13,200 have been diagnosed with diabetes in Cardiff and a further 2,600 may have the condition.

Dai Williams, National Director of Diabetes UK Cymru, said: “It is vital that we get as many people along to the walk to mark Diabetes Week 2010.

“It is a super family day and will raise money to support people with diabetes and their families throughout Wales.

“Best of all, living a healthy lifestyle is important for good diabetes control and walking is a great way to become more active.”
