A caring brother is half way through his mission of running 12 races in wacky fancy dress costumes to help raise awareness of diabetes.
Premesh Nathwani from Stanmore , Harrow , has already donned a rabbit, flower and superhero costume as he reaches the midway mark in his plans to complete a dozen 10km runs - equivalent to 120km or 75 miles - this year in aid of Diabetes UK.
The 24-year-old tax consultant, inspired by his older sister who has lived with Type 1 diabetes since she was a child, says he wants to see a future where there is a cure for the condition.
Mr Nathwani, who has been training hard, says he wants to do what he can to help 'bete' diabetes.
He said: “The support has been overwhelming, but some of the fancy dress suggestions from my friends have been questionable.
“It is a bit warm running in fancy dress but it is good fun as well.
“I have done six runs so far around London and I’m planning on completing my seventh in the next couple of weeks.”
Claire Lubbock, Diabetes UK fundraising manager, said: “It’s wonderful to hear of Premash’s efforts on our behalf and 12 runs - in fancy dress - is a significant challenge.
“Every penny raised will help us to support the 3.5 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK so please give generously to back Premesh and support his amazing effort.”
