We are pleased to announce that GlucoRx will be our Commercial Partner for the Mercer Surrey Half Marathon.
GlucoRx is one of the UK’s leading Suppliers of Diabetes products to the NHS, with their head office based in Woking.
GlucoRx has staff based across the whole of the UK who provide training and equipment to the NHS for the treatment and management of Diabetes.
Chris Chapman, Sales Director for GlucoRx, commented “We are proud to be supporting the event as part of our commitment to community events in Woking where our head office is based, building on our aim to get people fit and healthier – Extending our commitment from the football pitches of Aldershot FC and Woking Tigers FC to the streets of Woking and far beyond, all the while raising money and profile for our good causes.”
GlucoRx has committed a team of over 30 runners for the half marathon from across the UK who will be raising money for the company’s nominated charities, and will be using GlucoRx Allpresan cream on their feet during their training preparations.
Last year GlucoRx’s team raised money for Health Amplifier (https://www.healthamplifier.org/) which transforms the lives of people living in extreme poverty by providing quality healthcare and community development. By empowering the locals to care for one another, we are achieving better health, diet and education.
Reading this report and seeing all the good work that is being done by the Charity Health Amplifier with our support in improving the lives of the people of Kikavu brought me close to tears.
Such an amazing difference in such a short period of time.
I am really looking forward to the next 12 months and the construction of the new specialist diabetes care and a mother & child unit which we have fondly named internally as the Chris Chapman Centre – but in all seriousness, we can’t wait to see the finished building and the Legacy this will create for the people of Kikavu and others.
We were interested to read recently about a trial conducted at the University of Minnesota looking at how easy, if possible at all, it was for a group of people to give up sugar in their coffee.
All the 127 participants (who didn’t have diabetes) were placed into three groups. These were randomly selected groups, each with a different aim. (more…)
GlucoRx has entered into a partnership with Inside Biometrics International Limited to develop a next-generation continuous glucose monitoring system.
Following funding constraints, Woking-based GlucoRx, has stepped in to provide finance and secure the future of the Dingwall, Scotland-based manufacturer and supplier of equipment for people with diabetes, in a move set to bring together the “perfect ingredients” which will allow the newly created organisation to develop the latest in continuous glucose monitoring systems (CGM).
Woking community leaders and one of the UK’s leading ethical medical equipment suppliers have combined to give local sport a shot in the arm by funding eight new football teams for children aged 5 to 18.
Maybury team Woking Tigers, a not-for-profit, volunteer-led club founded in 2010 which already runs three adult football teams, a cricket team and even a Twenty20 cricket league, can now give hundreds of local children the chance to stay fit and healthy thanks to the support of Woking Asian Business Forum, GlucoRx and Surrey County Council.
People with diabetes can now take steps to manage their condition at the same time as doing their weekly shop.
From September 1, supermarket giant Asda will stock the GlucoRx Nexus blood glucose meter and strips, in all of its 631 stores across the UK.
The Woking-based company launched its affordable meter for people with diabetes in 2010, allowing people with the condition to simply manage their diabetes. (more…)
