Pediatric and adolescent diabetes specialists from around the world will be in Hyderabad for the 2018 ISPAD Conference. To promote awareness of their quest for a better world for children with diabetes, ISPAD will be organizing a Charity Run!


WHERE: Novotel & HICC Complex

WHEN: (BLUE) Sunday, October 14, at 07:30 (Meeting and warm-up from 07:00 moderated by Gavin Griffiths). The event is free and open to the public of any age – delegates, patients and families! You can run, walk, jog or just watch and enjoy!


Join us to have some healthy fun and show your support for the patients, families and scientists in their fight against diabetes. A snack will be provided, but we encourage families to bring their own breakfast if their child has specific dietary requirements.

The Q&A session which will immediately follow the Charity Run will feature Phil Zeitler, Carmel Smart, Gavin Griffiths and Apoorva Gomber and will be moderated by Carine de Beaufort, Leenatha Jakkidi, and Anju Virmani. Following this, families will be invited to view the posters in poster / exhibition area. Please look out for the “Family Friendly” flags!

Participants are invited to donate at their own discretion to support a local children’s charity project. To create a feeling of community among all participants, we also encourage everyone to wear blue on that particular day! Blue ISPAD T-shirts will be sold at the ISPAD Networking Space during the entire conference. Income from T-shirt sales will be added to the donations and given to a local children’s charity.

Pre-registration is required. Register here.
