Strides for Diabetes Awareness in Turkey
Lions are continuing to make strides through Diabetes Awareness Month! Above is a photo from a Strides walking event held last year in Istanbul, Turkey. Lions from various clubs of District 118-T participated in the walk, chanting “Ten thousand steps a day, keep diabetes away!” The walk, from Istanbul Tunnel to Taksim, was cheered by spectators’ applause and included a release of blue balloons into the sky.
The Lions also created their own diabetes bookmarks and brochures with the help and input from their partners, the Living with Diabetes Association and the Turkish Diabetes Foundation.
