We are grateful to the MNU members who have already signed up to participate in our virtual Lace Up for Diabetes event for the month of September!

There’s still loads of time for you to join and/or donate, please click this link for the Team MNU page.

For those who would like to participate in our event by walking, running, and/or cycling, Team MNU’s goal is 2,000 km, which is the distance between Winnipeg and Churchill, and back to Winnipeg. MNU’s fundraising goal for this year’s virtual Lace Up is $5,000.

Our event will be ongoing for the entire month of September and there will be prizes for the individual who raises the most money and the individual who notches the highest distance.  

A reminder that Diabetes Canada launched a new Lace Up app this summer that makes participating and donating much easier. Please download the app to your phone, as it will keep track of your steps and is compatible with your FitBit, Apple Watch and Garmin.

For Locals/Worksites/Regions that would like to donate, you’ll have until Oct. 15 to get your cheques in. As we have done in years past, please make the cheques out to MNU and add in the memo or notes section “Lace Up for Diabetes”.

Every year, thousands of Lacers from coast to coast to coast take part in Lace Up to End Diabetes to raise funds and awareness for Diabetes Canada. Anyone at any fitness level can participate.

Each step you take and every dollar you raise will have a profound impact on the lives of the nearly 12 million people in Canada who are affected by diabetes.

Join #LaceUpYourWay this September!
