Built into the DiabetesSisters Conference is the Orange:Will Diabetes Awareness Walk taking place on Sunday May 20, 2012 at 8:00 AM in front of the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, NC.
Taken from the website where you can register and learn more:
“What is ORANGE:WILL?
The orange:will campaign was started by DiabetesSisters in 2010 to raise awareness of the unique issues faced by women with diabetes and to establish orange as the official color of women’s diabetes. Most people are unaware of how different diabetes is for women, so this campaign is our way of acknowledging those differences and educating the public about them.
You can help by joining us for the walk, bringing friends/family members/co-workers to the Walk, forming a team, or raising funds to support our cause. Everyone who raises at least $40 will receive a souvenir Walk t-shirt to wear at the event. The top three individual fundraisers and the top team will receive special prizes – such as an iPad, custom-fitted tennis shoes, designer sunglasses, etc. Stay tuned for more detailed information about prizes.
**LOCAL & NATIONAL VENDORS WILL BE ON SITE FROM 7:30am-10:00am on MAY 20th.”
