Derrick Errol Evans MBE, better known

as Mr Motivator, is a Jamaican-born

British fitness instructor. He rose to fame

in 1993 through appearances on the UK

breakfast television show GMTV, where

he performed live fitness sessions and

offered tips and advice to viewers. He's

back and calling for Britain to focus

on fitness this year to raise money for

Type 1 diabetes research, on the 100th

anniversary of the discovery of insulin.

Mr Motivator is taking part in the 100

Challenge, a fundraising campaign in aid

of JDRF which aims to raise £100,000 to

power the next breakthrough in Type 1

diabetes research. He comments, "As a

father of a daughter with Type 1 diabetes,

I hope that, one day, there will be a cure.

In the meantime, why don't you take on

your own 100 Challenge this year and do

something that benefits you by getting

you fitter, but will also help JDRF raise

funds for vital research. Say yeah!"

To take part in the 100 Challenge,

JDRF is asking supporters to pick a

sporty or exercise related challenge that

is themed around the number 100 and

raise money through sponsorship. In

light of the recently current third national

lockdown, focusing on mental health and

wellbeing has never been more important.

The 100 Challenge is a great opportunity

for people to structure their time around

daily exercise and improve their fitness.

Anyone taking part must make sure

their challenge is done safely and within

government guidelines.

"All you need to do is pick a physical

challenge involving the number 100," says

Mr Motivator, "It can be as easy or as hard

as you like -100 steps, 100 minutes of

walking, 100 hours of running, 100kms of

cycling, or a daily challenge of 100 squats,

push ups, burpees or press ups.

The discovery of insulin 100 years ago

saved millions of lives of people with Type

1 diabetes. Since the discovery of insulin,

research has powered the development

of new technologies that have made

this life-long and life-altering condition

easier to manage. Lee Newman, Head of

Regional Fundraising at JDRF says, "We

have come so far since the discovery of

insulin, but there is still much more to

do. The money raised through the 100

Challenge is vital in helping us realise our

mission to cure, prevent and treat Type 1

diabetes."
