Organise a diabetes walk

Organising a physical activity like a diabetes walk to mark World Diabetes Day is a great way to raise awareness of diabetes and promote the importance of regular exercise to help prevent type 2 diabetes and manage all type of diabetes. Visit our Flickr album for inspiration.

This November, join the Global Diabetes Walk, an initiative created by the World Diabetes Foundation (WDF) in support of World Diabetes Day. Since 2004, more than four million people of all ages have joined WDF’s effort to raise awareness and encourage more people to take steps towards achieving a healthier future.
