Lace up For Diabetes

#LaceUp4Diabetes  Have you heard of it?  I admit that I hadn’t.  What I had heard of was a friend on Facebook who was giving away these adorable shoe laces.

I commented on how cute they were.  He offered to send me a pair. Unfortunately because we were living in two separate countries, the hassle of mailing them was a bit much.  He did however pass along to his contact that I was interested in the laces.  This was the result…

Thirty pairs of shoes laces with the World Diabetes Circle on them!

It was a wonderful surprise.  I had only expected one pair.

These cute novelty items are the work of Novo Nordisk in an effort to offer support for those living with and at risk for, diabetes.  They write “Because if we all take these steps together, we can change diabetes.”  So very true!  Whether we work together towards a cure, to offer support, or to change legislation, one voice united is so much stronger.
