GLOBAL DIABETES WALK
The Walk is a global diabetes awareness campaign organised every year in November by the World Diabetes Foundation (WDF).
Since 2004, more than 5 million people joined the Global Diabetes Walk to support the prevention of diabetes, one of the largest global public health concerns. Become a Walk organiser and let’s encourage a more active, healthier lifestyle!

When you walk you take care of yourself. and spread awareness about the importance of diabetes prevention and care. Awareness leads to advocacy and advocacy leads to change.
You also gain visibility. WDF features outstanding Walks on its websites and social media - sharing stories and pictures from ambitious organisers like you!
Once you complete your Walk, WDF awards you with a digital certificate of appreciation.
