Catch up with your mates and celebrate
Held annually on November 14, this is an official United Nations Day. The day celebrates the scientific achievements of the founders of insulin, this day being the birthday of one of the founders. The International Federation of Diabetes uses the blue circle as their logo, and is used in all promotions and events. The light blue circle is used as it is the colour of the sky and also the colour of the United Nations flag. In many cities around the world blue lighting is used to illuminate buildings to mark this day, including in the past, the London Eye and the Opera House in Sydney.
The day will be celebrated in Victor Harbor this November with an easy 3 km walk, leaving Warland Reserve, down on the esplanade at 10.30am. To boost your energy and enthusiasm for the walk they will hold a walkers healthy breakfast of fruit pancakes and beverages, for the cost of $5. The breakfast will be held at Carrickalinga House on Torrens Road at 8am. There will also be guest speakers who have participated in the walk previously.
This will be will be a wonderful social event out in the fresh spring morning air, and to meet others and to learn of information on diabetes and local resources for diabetes. You dont have to have diabetes to participate in the days activities. It is a community event to celebrate the day.
