Why Bowl to Strike Out Stigma?

People living with diabetes often face stigma and discrimination - a troubling reality made harsher by the fact that diabetes is now an epidemic in Canada. This life-threatening disease affects one in three Canadians, meaning each one of us likely knows someone who has diabetes or prediabetes. You can help eliminate the ignorance surrounding diabetes and build support for all Canadians living with this disease.
