Be an Ambassador

Represent Lace Up in your community by becoming an ambassador. With Lacers joining the movement from coast to coast to coast, we want to make sure that everyone feels included and feels close to our cause. We are looking for ambassadors who are willing to share their story and connect with other people affected by diabetes or prediabetes.
