GLOBAL DIABETES WALK
How to organise
Plan your Walk
Look for partners. Reach out to relevant spokespersons, leaders of diabetes associations and others who can help you get the word out, provide good ideas, and contribute financing for your plan.
Choose a distance and date. Many Walks take place on or around November 14, World Diabetes Day – but any time in November is fine.
Choose a place. Depending on the type of your chosen activities you might want to walk down the street or take over the town square.
Register your Walk. Don't forget to register your Walk on our website. The earlier you register, the better. People like to follow an example, so give them one!
See Resources for information about diabetes, exercise, COVID-19 and NCDs, and more. You will also find social media-friendly images and graphics.
If COVID-19 restrictions do not allow a Walk, consider encouraging your community to participate as individuals. Refer them to our website and social media, and share with them an informational flyer.
