Do the Big Blue Test on World Diabetes Day

Do the Big Blue Test on World Diabetes Day

The Big Blue Test is a program of the Diabetes Hands Foundation (DHF). It takes place every November 14—World Diabetes Day. People with diabetes are invited to test their blood sugar at 2 p.m. (local time), do 14 minutes of activity, test again, and share the results.

On November 14, 2010, DHF is aiming for a minimum of 100,000 views of its Big Blue Test promotional video. To help the foundation reach this goal, Roche Diabetes Care has pledged a donation for every view the video receives up to $75,000. DHF will use the donation to help the Life for a Child program, run by the International Diabetes Federation, and Insulin For Life. These two global, humanitarian organizations provide diabetes medication and supplies to children in the world's poorest countries.
