GlucoStories: Everyone's Got One.
I'm a supporter getting the stories of people with diabetes out there for public consumption. Awareness and advocacy are the name of the game, for me. We aren't perfect, we don't have all the answers, but we do know what it's like to live, every day, with diabetes.
And now you can share your story and win a prize! Here are the details, according to the info I received:
If you have diabetes, support someone with diabetes, or help the diabetes community, then tell us. Your story could win you a trip to Charlie Kimball’s Firestone Indy Lights Championship race in Florida October 8-10, 2009! (Or other great prizes!)
Entries deadline: Monday, July 6, 2009 Midnight (EST). Enter at www.GlucoStories.com.
I'm pro-Charlie, as you know. I think he's a great guy and I like his mission to help people with diabetes (and I'd also like to drive his car). So when the folks at American Diabetes Wholesale (they're putting this contest on) asked me to help spread the word, I was more than happy to help - and I'll be serving as one of the contest judges, as well. Also, according to the email I received from my buddy at ADW, "any funds that are received from this event will be donated entirely to JDRF." I can't argue with that.
So if you have a story to tell, you still have a few more days to enter to win!
