join the big blue test: each test = a life-saving donation. 14 to 20 minutes of exercise lowers your blood sugar and gets life-saving supplies to people with diabetes in need.
Once again the Diabetes Hands Foundation has partnered with Roche Diabetes Care for the Big Blue Test.
If you recall last year’s video that featured some awesome PWD’s we know, insulin was donated based on the number of times the video was viewed and 2,000 children received life-saving insulin.
This year, the donation will be based on the number of people with diabetes who test their blood sugar, exercise for 14 minutes, and test again and then enter their results on the site. They are shooting for 8,000 participants.
You can actually do the test and enter your results multiple times, but the participant needs to have diabetes because they will be using the data.
$75,000 will be donated and will benefit

You have until World Diabetes Day, November 14th, to enter your (or your child’s) results.
