November 14th is World Diabetes Day and the people at Diabetes Hands Foundation are organizing an online awareness event to take place at 2pm local time.
Its goal is to raise awareness around the importance of blood glucose testing and physical activity for people with diabetes. In the process, thousands of people touched by diabetes will connect with others with diabetes as they participate, testing their blood glucose, doing 14 minutes of exercise, testing again and sharing their results online.Participation is easy. At 2pm test your blood glucose (BG). Then exercise for 14 minutes, and test your BG again. Then post your results at http://bigbluetest.org; you can even add pictures if you want.
I'm hoping this nice weather we;ve been having will hold so I can take a nice walk. How about you?
