When you hear the diagnosis “diabetes”, it is a Moment in Time you never forget. It is a moment that forever changes your life and the life of your family. Diabetes is a complicated disease that requires 24/7 management every day from the moment of diagnosis. The Canadian Diabetes Association’s mission is to lead the fight against diabetes; to help those affected by diabetes lead healthy lives; to prevent the onset and consequences of diabetes; and to work to find a cure.
The funds raised at the annual Baubles for Banting gala through the generous support of our guests, sponsors, donors, volunteers and staff, help us deliver on our mission and make an impact for the 1.1. million British Columbians (and 9 million Canadians nationwide) living with diabetes and prediabetes.
To date, over $340,000 has been raised to support research, advocacy and educational programming such as webinars, expos and D-Camps!
“As a kid diagnosed with diabetes in 2002, I know first-hand how amazing Camp Kakhamela is. I learned so much at camp – from how to inject my own insulin, to the idea that I could play and be active just like other kids my age. D-Camps are truly one of a kind and I know funds raised will be put to use connecting, inspiring and encouraging other kids living with diabetes, just like it did for me.” Anthony Ast, Junior Hockey Player
At Baubles for Banting guests enjoy tasty bites, delicious wine, sparkling gems, great entertainment and an incredible array of live and silent auction items. Join us on May 21, 2015 at Birks downtown Vancouver to help us continue to deliver on our mission and to support someone you know living with diabetes!
We thank our tremendous volunteers, sponsors, and partners for making this annual event meaningful and a great success.
