Event Recap: World Diabetes Day Photo Scavenger Hunt 2014

WDD---Header

With December 1st comes the close of Diabetes Awareness Month 2014. This year there were a lot of great initiatives going on: Big Blue Test, Smash Diabetes, WDD Twitter Marathon, and the #Insulin4All campaign… just to name a few!

For our part, we ran our third World Diabetes Day Photo Scavenger Hunt event. This year, we had an astounding 80 groups from around the world sign up to participate! We couldn’t think of a better way to close out Diabetes Awareness Month than to share some our favourite photos submitted online for this year’s WDD Photo Scavenger Hunt:
