Do Something You Love and Help Defeat Diabetes Foundation

Spring is here, the days are getting longer, the weather is warmer and people are starting to get outside and moving around again. Many of you may participate in regular sports activities --marathons, 5Ks, fun runs, walk-a-thons, cycling events, and softball are just a few.

These are good for your physical well-being and a great way for you to help raise funds for Defeat Diabetes Foundation. We’ve teamed up with Firstgiving, an amazing group of people who have made it easy for you to help raise funds for your favorite non-profit charity online.
 
You can request people to "sponsor" you in an event you participate in to raise funds for DDF. Instead of the old way with pledge forms and tons of follow-up chasing down the check, Firstgiving allows you to create your own online page, invitation, and thank you letter. Then you just send to your email list and they can sign on to the secure server, make their donation via credit card and it’s all done. No more collecting pledges!

Teams for local charity walking events can be formed at your workplace. You can find support and encouragement for your fitness goals and fundraising efforts when you join a team. If you don't know of a team to join, invite a few friends to join you. Short events require little or no training since the average person can walk 6 miles with no prior conditioning.
