Team DC


The heart of any organization are its people.  At Diabetes Canada each member of our team takes pride in  supporting all those that are affected by diabetes (Type 1, Type 2, Prediabetes, and other) directly and indirectly. That is why we are excited to participate in the 2nd annual Lace Up to End Diabetes, presented by GMS, Health & Travel insurance, 10K do it your way.   

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin. Insulin is a life changing discovery that helps many from day to day, but we know that it isn’t a cure. It’s the starting line, not the finishing line for diabetes.  We can't wait another 100 years to end diabetes. To emphasize the importance of this discovery several members of our team have decided to accept the 100K challenge. Pledging to go above and beyond the 10K do it your way and complete 100K their own way. 

Together we are making a difference by doing a virtual 10k or 100K challenge in our own way! We choose the activity and we set the pace, completing two hours of activity every day. The funds and awareness raised will go to support education, support services, advocacy and funding diabetes research that may just lead to the next big medical breakthrough. 

Please show support by helping us reach our team fundraising goal, join our team to fundraise or consider creating your own team!  Every kilometre makes a difference! 

Thank you for cheering us on!
