This is our movement to end diabetes

Join Canadians from across the country to raise funds and awareness, moving the fight against diabetes and prediabetes forward. Participate on your own or as a team, and level up your Lace Up your way!

Ways to participate

Do your #LaceUp10k your way! You choose the movement and you set the pace. Walk, run, ride or dance your kilometers in 2 hours, 2 days or 2 weeks. Fundraise to go the distance on your own, or lead a team of fundraisers who are all committed to lacing up for Diabetes Canada.
