LOD’s ‘Global Challenge’ (every biennial year) targets to connect a team of our DiAdvocates to engage together in an endurance challenge within one of our partnering ‘global alliance’ organisation’s home countries.
Supplying connected empowerment as an international group of type 1s – from trekking summits to relay missions – and reaching local diabetes networks in support of the partnering diabetes organisation’s educational mission.
In 2019 we are pleased to share that our LOD GLOBAL CHALLENGE will be reaching Costa Rica between 26th April – 4th May, where a team of 12 international DiAdvocates will assemble to tackle a 3-day mountain trek, whilst further supporting the local diabetes networks of Asociacion Dia Vida. Full schedule to be released in March!
2019’s Global Challenge will be fundraising to support projects within the AFRICA LOD Zone, with the active organisations Sonia Nabeta Foundation & Diabetes Youth Care Ghana making a significant impact to young lives living with diabetes, facing very difficult circumstances in access to education and health care essentials.
