Today is World Diabetes Day

Today marks World Diabetes Day, led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and celebrated by millions of people worldwide — including Lions everywhere — to raise awareness about diabetes.

Lions’ commitment to the control, treatment, prevention and education of diabetes is shown through our year-round projects and events, including Strides events, diabetes screenings, vision screenings, diabetes camps and more.

How is your Lions club participating in World Diabetes Day? There are several ways you can share your stories:

  • Post photos of your events throughout the day on Facebook and Twitter with the hashtags #LionsClub and #WDD.
  • Share photos through the Submit a Photo page.
  • Add photos to the official World Diabetes Day Flickr pool to show the world how Lions are joining the fight against diabetes!
