We set a stretch goal to raise $5000.00 to help stop diabetes for the 170,000 people currently living with diabetes in Charlotte. We raised $8100.00!! 120 friends, family and neighbors contributed to the cause and helped our team reach this unexpected amount. November 1st was walk day and it was cold (41 degrees), wet and overcast but more than 70 members of the 100 Black Men and Friends team showed up and walked with hundreds of other teams to show we are committed to Stop Diabetes. I hope you are as proud of our team we are.
Until next year’s fundraising campaign, take care of yourself by maintaining a healthy weight, be regularly active, pay attention to the foods you eat and check your blood glucose (70-100) and A1c (<6.0) levels with your doctor to insure they are in the normal range. Let’s Stop Diabetes!
