Research shows that being moderately active benefits your health. We endeavour to encourage everyone to move your bodies more. You don't have to be a sporting hero to reap your rewards but we are always grateful to those sporting heroes who support The Rebalance Foundation.
The Rebalance Foundation entered two teams into the Yorkshire Marathon Corporate Relay on Sunday 9th October 2016 in and around York. Click here for the photo gallery.
The Twice in 24 Hours Challenge saw two crazy heroes walk the legendary 3 Peaks of Yorkshire twice, back to back. Starting at 7.30pm on the Friday, Dav and Gav set off in the direction of Pen-y-ghent. They were next seen at midnight ready to climb Whernside. By breakfast on the Saturday they had completed all 3 peaks once, and were ready at the foot of Ingleborough to start all over again. Thanks to all the people that supported them and walked some of the way with them on the second time around, encouraging them and making sure they completed the challenge.

Our intrepid David is planning to walk the 268 mile Pennine Way in 10 days carrying full gear, and camping wild, in aid of The Rebalance Foundation.
As soon as the Just Giving pages are up and running, we'll keep you posted and we'd love your support.
Every year November is International Diabetes Awareness Month and we've earmarked this as the time to hold our annual balls. The International Diabetes Awareness symbol is a blue circle... hence the name of our "Blue Ball". Our Inaugural Blue Ball was held on Friday 25th November 2016 at Fairfield Manor Mercure Hotel, York. It was a fun evening with a school prom theme, including an expert balloon modeller, a top master of ceremonies, and live entertainment by The Mojos. The guests enjoyed a sumptuous banquet of healthy foods - the guests were amazed that healthy food could be so luxurious and flavoursome! The whole evening showed off exactly what The Rebalance Foundation stands for.
"That was the best charity ball we've ever been to - I'll be booking a whole table next year!" - Jon Charters-Reid
"What a fabulous evening, I thoroughly enjoyed it" - Heather Johnson
