Get involved in raising awareness and take part in the Blue Balloon Challenge
On this page you’ll find lots of ideas and resources to support awareness of diabetes in schools and communities. You can share theses with your friends, family and teachers. There is even an assembly presentation that you can download and use on World Diabetes Day.
The Blue Balloon Challenge:
Post a video or photo of yourself doing a daily activity whilst trying to balance a balloon in the air and talk about what it means to you living with type 1 diabetes. Your friends, family and school can also do this showing their support to the type 1 community.
