WORLD DIABETES DAY

DIABETES: NURSES MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

The theme for World Diabetes Day 2020 is The Nurse and Diabetes. The campaign aims to raise awareness around the crucial role that nurses play in supporting people living with diabetes.

Nurses currently account for over half of the global health workforce. They do outstanding work to support people living with a wide range of health concerns. People who either live with diabetes or are at risk of developing the condition need their support too.

People living with diabetes face a number of challenges, and education is vital to equip nurses with the skills to support them.

As the number of people with diabetes continues to rise across the world, the role of nurses and other health professional support staff becomes increasingly important in managing the impact of the condition.

Healthcare providers and governments must recognise the importance of investing in education and training. With the right expertise, nurses can make the difference for people affected by diabetes.

CLC WALK TO END ALZHEIMER’S

The Colleyville Lions & Leos are participating in Walk to End Alzheimer’s® on October 17th.
We are striving to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer’s care, support, and research.
We are leading the way to Alzheimer’s first survivor — but your help is needed!
Last year the Colleyville Lions Team was the TOP FUND RAISING TEAM for the Grapevine event with over $6,000 in contributions, and we didn’t even get started until 6 weeks before the event. I have no doubt, with this early start, we can reach our $10,000 goal by October 17th!

Will you join me on this important day by walking beside me? With you on my team, together we can make a real difference in the fight against the nation’s sixth-leading cause of death.
Registration is easy; simply visit our Walk to End Alzheimer’s Lions & Leos page and join our team.

If you’re unable to participate, please consider making a donation to our fundraising campaign.
Please visit our Lions & Leos fundraising page to make a secure, online donation or write a check. Check donations should be made out to the Alzheimer’s Association.
You can a mail check to the Alzheimer’s Association along with the form available on our fundraising page, or mail your check donation to me and I can deposit it directly to the Alzheimer’s Association.

All donations benefit the Alzheimer’s Association — and every dollar makes a difference in this fight. Together, we can end Alzheimer’s disease!

Thank you for your support.
