A number of people walked through the Victoria Park in Leicester today to raise awareness to the risk of diabetes among black and Asian communities.
The walk was led by the members of the Dawoodi Bohra Community.
They raised more than £30,000 working in association with the University of Leicester as well as a number of diabetes centres.
Doctors from the city's hospitals joined the walk today as well. There were free diabetes checks offered at the park.
It is estimated that south Asians are two to three times more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes than Europeans.
