The JDRF Make a Splash sponsored swim event has been an example of the fantastic commitment of JDRF supporters and the generosity of all with a connection to type 1 diabetes.
The swim is a unique challenge with options for all ages and abilities and is ideal for both adults and families.
There are four different distances participants can attempt over the 12 weeks, from a mile long swim to the distance of the English Channel.
There have been many inspiring stories from a challenge that has seen people of all ages make a splash for type 1 diabetes research and raise funds to support JDRF and type 1 diabetes research.
Just some of these are shared below.
