Diabetes is successful at outrunning us all

Every 3 minutes a Canadian is diagnosed with diabetes or prediabetes.

Diabetes is not slowing down and more work needs to be done. One in 3 people across Canada are affected by diabetes or prediabetes, and some will experience serious and even life-threatening complications.

That’s why we are glad you’re here! Every dollar you raise through Lace Up to End Diabetes helps support the millions of Canadians living diabetes or prediabetes and the important work led by Diabetes Canada.
