Walk for Diabetes - St.John’s

Welcome to Walk for Diabetes!
 
Join us as at our inaugural Walk for Diabetes on Sunday, June 3rd and make a change in the lives of the more than 9 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes! There will be fun for the whole family including games, music, lots of prizes, Subway and refreshments, face painting, colour sheets and a fish pond for the little ones. This “walk around the pond” is a great way to spend time with friends and family, be active, all the while raising vital dollars to help support the work of the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Time:  2:00pm (check in at St. Theresa’s Parish Hall, Mundy Pond Road from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm)

In addition to walking, we encourage you to raise funds to support the great work of the Association including research, education, advocacy and programs such as Camp Douwanna in Bishop’s Falls, just one of our many camps across Canada for children with Type 1 diabetes.
