Regional Report: Racing to beat diabetes in Brazil

The Race to Beat Diabetes, an annual promotion by the Institute for Children with Diabetes (ICD), reached its 18th milestone in 2016. Thousands of people gathered at the Moinhos de Ventos Park in Porto Alegre, Brazil on June 5, 2016. Approximately 20 thousand people participated in the event; many ran the course while others cheered on and donated to the event by buying a t-shirt for a noble cause - to help children and adolescents with type 1 diabetes live better lives. In addition to promoting healthy physical exercise and volunteer work within the community, the Race to Beat Diabetes brings much needed public awareness about diabetes. Moreover, the race raises funds for the benefit of the 3,188 children and adolescents assisted by ICD with the help of the Conceição Hospital Group and the Brazilian Ministry of Health.
