2 It is back !! Saturday 14th November, 2020 Upper Coomera Lions are delighted to join other neighbouring clubs nationwide to participate in Lions ‘ Lap the Map ’ for Diabetes Awareness. Australia’s largest service organisation to ‘ Lap the Map ’ for diabetes. • Across Australia over 1.3 million people have diabetes and 283 people are diagnosed every day. • Lions Clubs across Australia will be holding a range of fundraisers and family friendly healthy exercise activities to mark World Diabetes Day this November. • Diabetes has been named one of Lions’ 5 key focus areas for the coming year. Australia’s largest service organisation Lions Australia is on a mission to reduce the prevalence of diabetes. This year, in the lead up to World Diabetes Day in November Lions Clubs across the country are organising a series of events in their local communities. The ‘Lions Lap theMap’ family friendly walks and community events will promote healthy lifestyle and raise awareness of the Diabetes epidemic in Australia. Clubs will be reporting the length of their walks and are aiming to have a combined distance travelled that will exceed Australia’s circumference (25,760 kms). Lions Clubs will be engaging with local groups and experts to provide information on diabetes at the events. Early diagnosis, optimal treatment and effective ongoing support and management reduce the risk of diabetes-related complications and in recent years Lions Clubs across Australia have been focused on raising awareness and funds to support more vital research into the diagnoses and treatment. Diabetes has been named as a key focus for Lions moving forward. Upper Coomera Lions participates in a wide variety of activities at a local, national and international level to ensure that we fully support our local and wider community, along with other local Lions Clubs.
