Virtual Stride – “Striding for Healthy Living “
In observance of Diabetes Awareness Month MD 2 is having a Virtual Diabetes Stride, (run, bike, walk) challenge for our Districts. “At your Own leisure, pace, and time we are asking Lions and family members to record how far you walk, run, bike or dance during the month of November.
This event is being held as a MD 2 & District Diabetes Awareness Project in efforts to bring families, communities, and friends together and raise awareness, and the benefits of maintaining a good healthy lifestyle. Meeting the need of one of our global causes- This is a great way to support Diabetes Awareness alone with getting much-needed exercise. Many have found this as a great way to recruit new members. We are asking each club to participate and track the hours of each Lion and family member that participates. Please send your final report to our District Diabetes Chair so your information can be recorded and entered into the MD 2 Diabetes Activity Challenge.
