Lace Up Your Way
We invite you to #LaceUpYourWay! You choose the activity and you set the pace. Whatever you decide to do, every Lacer helps fund education, support services, advocacy and diabetes research that could lead to the next big medical breakthrough.
Whether you’re a hobby jogger or love the thrill of going fast, running is one of the quickest ways to clock your kilometres.
Hop on your bike, scooter, or skateboard to go the distance. Indoor bikes count, too! This is the easiest way to complete the 100k Challenge!
Walking is an easy way to exercise, and a great way to get the whole family involved: parents, kids, and even your pets!
Join us by stretching, toning, or dancing in your living room! Every two hours of a workout is about 10 kilometres of distance travelled.
Join us on September 25 for Lace Up Day
We are hosting the first-ever cross-country relay for Lace Up to End Diabetes on Sunday, September 25, 2022! Starting in the Atlantic provinces and all the way to BC, we’re bringing together Lacers and pros from across Canada to share stories and tips about living with diabetes.
Snap a photo or video of you participating in the Lace Up Day 5k and use the medal sticker on the app! Share with #LaceUpYourDay and tag us @DiabetesCanada.
