Australia’s largest service organisation is on a mission to reduce prevalence of diabetes

Posted on Jul 15th 2020 by in Media Releases, News

It’s National Diabetes Week and Lions Clubs across Australia are on a mission to reduce the prevalence of diabetes and improve the quality of life for those diagnosed.

Diabetes has been named one of the Lions’ 5 key focus areas and the organisation is encouraging those in their community to stay active particularly through the COVID-19 health pandemic.

  • Across Australia over 1.3 million people have diabetes and 283 people are diagnosed every day
  • Lions Clubs are encouraging those in their community to stay active particularly through the COVID-19 health pandemic
  • Lions volunteers are putting their walking shoes on and are aiming to have a combined distance travelled that will exceed Australia’s circumference (25,760 kms) by World Diabetes Day on 14th November
