Diabetes is not slowing down. Every 3 minutes, a person in Canada is diagnosed with diabetes. Most of us know someone who is living with either Type 1 or Type 2 diabetes.
Over the last 100 years since the discovery of insulin, we have made great strides in helping people living with diabetes. But insulin is not a cure and diabetes is not slowing down. Diabetes continues to grow in prevalence, cause devastating complications or death, and impact the quality of life for those living with diabetes and the people who care about them.
That's why, once again, I'm Lacing Up to help bring us one step closer to a cure. Please help me make a lasting difference by donating to my page. Last year my goal was to walk 100 miles in the month of September. In the end, I walked 140 miles. This year, my goal is to walk 150 miles in the month.
Every dollar raised helps fund education, support services, advocacy and diabetes research that could lead to the next big medical breakthrough.
Please show your support by helping me reach my fundraising goal. Check back often to see updates on my progress.
Thank you for cheering me on!
