EVENT DATE: Jun 04, 2016
"In just one day, diabetes will claim 200 lives and 200 limbs. Today, 4,660 Americans will be diagnosed with diabetes, and the country will spend $671 million on diabetes related issues. At this moment, there are 86 million Americans with pre-diabetes, and there are a staggering 8.1 million people who do not know they have diabetes. The money you help to raise will help fund educational outreach, advocacy efforts and critical research that will ultimately stop diabetes once and for all. The mission we have is an urgent one: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. Your support means so much to us."
