Bowl to Strike Out Stigma this June

Consider these facts: One in three Canadians is living with diabetes or prediabetes; 33% of Canadians with diabetes are hesitant to tell other people they have the disease*; 33% of Canadians with diabetes “experience anxiety as a result of their disease.”*

Isn’t it time we did something about this? We’ve dubbed June “Bowl to Strike Out Stigma” month. It`s your chance do good for the 11 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes, and to have fun with your family, friends and coworkers.

It’s easy: hold a bowling event – at an alley or at your home or office – and help us strike out the stigma of diabetes now. To get ready to roll, visit BowlforDiabetes.ca today.
