Become a World Diabetes Day Champion

World Diabetes Day champions show their support by organizing activities that align with the campaign goals and promote World Diabetes Day to the public and media, or promote government action for change. Examples include government action to improve diabetes care and prevention, individual or group action to lobby local or national governments to improve diabetes care, or awareness-raising activities that attract public and media attention such as Desert Dingo - the World Diabetes Day VW Beetle that races to raise awareness of diabetes or the motorcycle enthusiast who crosses the desert on the World Diabetes Day bike.

World Diabetes Day champions are promoted through the website and are encouraged to work closely with the campaign team to make the most of opportunities to promote World Diabetes Day. Contact worlddiabetesday@idf.org and let us know what you are planning.

The campaign team will consider all requests and reserves the right to reject any applications.
