Challenge

There are 25.8 million Americans living with diabetes, another 79 million people with pre-diabetes. If trends do not change, 1 in 3 children born in 2000 will have diabetes in their lifetime. Diabetes is the cause of 224,000 deaths each year and is the number one cause of blindness, kidney disease and amputations not caused by trauma.

Solution

Money raised will be used for diabetes research, advocacy and education.

Long-Term Impact

The American Diabetes Association's mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
