Ottawa, ON – July 30th 2013 – Walk or run in the Cash Store Financial Freedom Run for Diabetes Research and support the Canadian Diabetes Association and the 9 million Canadians living with diabetes or prediabetes!
The Canadian Diabetes Association is proud to partner with event sponsor Cash Store Financial to present 27 Freedom Run for Diabetes Research across Canada. These family-friendly event will be taking place throughout the month of September in cities across the country including Burnaby, Victoria, Nanaimo, Prince George, Red Deer, Grand Prairie, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Fort McMurray, London, Hamilton, Oakville, Peterborough, Thunder Bay, Barrie, Whitby, St. Catharine’s, Cornwall, Brantford, Waterloo, Sydney, Halifax, Fredericton, Moncton, St. John’s and Charlottetown.
In addition to adopting a healthier, more active lifestyle, walkers and runners are also encouraged to fundraise for the Association. The funds raised will be used to support Canada’s most renowned scientists and clinicians in their quest for innovative developments in the prevention, treatment and management of diabetes. Although the research is diverse in its scope, the key aspects remain the same – to improve the quality of life of people living with diabetes and to find a cure.
