Now that we know how to prevent diabetes, how’s Sun Life helping? What’s Sun Life Dunk for Diabetes?
Proudly, I had the chance to meet, see and hear what’s all about the Sun Life Dunk for Diabetes initiative during their special and first initiative launched in Quebec last week and I have to say, BRAVO! This program is the first one of its kind in the province, in association with the NBA, the Toronto Raptors, and Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada and Sun Life, as a great organizer and host, will help kids to understand the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle and how to prevent Type 2 diabetes, including:
- A complete six-week program, where kids will participate in a draft party (just like the NBA draft) and they’ll celebrate with Raptors personalities, signing their commitment with a contract to a new, fun, healthy living.
- Each week, these lucky participants will learn challenges (all basketball inspired), healthy nutrition education all encouraged by Sun Life advisors and videos featuring Toronto Raptors players (how cool is this?)
- This program is such an inspiration to bring awareness and education to little ones of the Dawson Boys and Girls Club in Montreal.
