November is American Diabetes Month! Raising awareness of this ever-growing disease is one of the main efforts behind the mission of the American Diabetes Association and their supporters, with programs designed to focus the nation’s attention on the issues surrounding diabetes and the many people who are impacted by the disease.
Here are just a few of the recent statistics on diabetes:
• Nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes.
• Another 86 million Americans have pre-diabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.
• The American Diabetes Association estimates that the total national cost of diagnosed diabetes in the United States is $245 billion.
To help Stop Diabetes® , Topical BioMedics has formed “Team Topricin” to participate in the 2015 Saratoga Tour de Cure, June 7th 2015. The company invites others to join their team and is seeking sponsorship donations to raise critical funds for diabetes research, education and advocacy.
Tour de Cure is the ADA’s signature fundraising cycling event that raises money to help change the future of diabetes and stop its devastating complications. With strong support from corporate and family teams across the country, this event raises over $26 million annually to find a cure for diabetes and support the ADA’s mission.
To join Team Topricin or offer a donation, visit http://www.teamtopricin.com. Topical BioMedics will pay the $15 registration fee for the first 100 people who register (enter discount code: Topricin). Monies raised fund research for a cure, information to help prevent diabetes, advocacy for those affected by diabetes and public awareness activities. #Stop Diabetes #TeamTopricin
