Walgreens, as always steps up the game and supports initiatives that really make the difference. This was a great event in which not only public awareness, but money was raised to help fund the research to find a cure for Diabetes.

Please consider joining the fight for the cure. For more information visit http://www.diabetesresearch.org and. Here is part of what they have to say:

“How can I help?” We hear that question all the time. We have the answer. Become a Diabetes Diplomat. Be the Hero! Diabetes Diplomats are all ages, from all over the world. How can you become one? By raising money to help the Diabetes Research Institute cure diabetes.

Do something you enjoy. Ask your family, friends and neighbors to join you. You might be surprised how willing they are to help — if you just ask!

  • You can make it big, like organizing a walk-a-thon in your school or community. Or, keep it small: participate in a run or walk — and ask people to sponsor you.
  • Keep it personal, like a letter-writing campaign explaining how diabetes has touched your life.
  • If you’re good at making things, sell them! (The “bake sale” is an old favorite.)
  • Organize a dance, or concert with local bands.
  • Put cannisters in stores in your neighborhood.
  • Use your imagination!
