Lace up for Diabetes – June 4, 2017

The 2017 edition of Lace Up for Diabetes takes place on June 4 and MAHCP is once again putting out the call for members to participate!

Members interested in signing up for this event, which starts at 8 a.m. and includes a 10 km timed run, 5 km walk/run, 3 km walk/run and a Kids Fun Run, can do so at the Team MAHCP page:

There are 15 sponsored spots available on Team MAHCP for members and will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.

In addition to food, beverages, medals and prizes for the top fundraisers, members will also get MAHCP T-shirts to wear on the day of the event.

We also need a few more members to volunteer at the food and refreshment tent. It’s a great opportunity to provide encouraging words and smiles for all of the participants.

The Lace Up for Diabetes event is for a wonderful cause; funds raised go towards Diabetes Canada’s programs and services, research, education and advocacy. The Canadian Diabetes Association became Diabetes Canada this past February.

If you would like to volunteer in the tent, please contact Team Captain Erin Flynn at eflynn33@yahoo.com .
