Supporting you every step of the way








raised for charity

The Simplyhealth Great Run joint logo

Since 1872 we’ve been helping people get healthcare through our health plans, charity partnerships and by being a voice in healthcare. Through our partnership with the Great Run Company and Diabetes UK, our charity partner for 2019, we aim to encourage even more people to benefit from better health.

2019 Official Charity Partner

Diabetes UK is the official charity partner of the 2019 Simplyhealth Great Run Series, helping increase awareness of one of the most devastating health issues of our time. The number of people affected is increasing. Nearly 3.7 million people in the UK have already been diagnosed and a further 12.3 million are at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes.


There isn’t yet a known cure. But physical exercise is shown to support in diabetes management and in the prevention of Type 2 diabetes. This makes the partnership with Simplyhealth, Diabetes UK and Great Run a vital one. One that can create positive change. Through the Simplyhealth Great Run Series we are encouraging as many people as possible to become more active on a regular basis for better physical and mental wellbeing.
