Today begins one of my favorite times of the year.  Every year, Diabetes Hands Foundation sponsors the Big Blue Test.  Now until November 14 (World Diabetes Day), you and your loved ones, plus anyone else you know, are encouraged to get moving.  And log the results.  And help diabetes groups doing amazing work to build community and help others.
Here’s how it works: first, check your blood glucose.  Not living with diabetes?  Skip this step.  Then get out and get moving for 14 to 20 minutes or more.  You can walk, run, swim, bike, play badminton, ride a Big Wheel, whatever.  Then do another BG check (or skip it if you don’t live with diabetes) and log the results at BigBlueTest.org.  Or make it easy on yourself and download the Big Blue Test app on your iPhone or Android device, and do the same.
For the next month, every Big Blue Test logged will result in a $3.00(US) donation, split evenly among three wonderful diabetes non-profits:
 
Diabetes Sisters
 
We Are Diabetes
 
Riverside Community Diabetes Collaborative
 
Three fantastic organizations providing help, education, and support to those living with or at risk of living with diabetes.
 
Today, Mike Lawson, Senior Director of Programs and Marketing for Diabetes Hands Foundation, joins me to talk everything Big Blue Test, including a little about this year’s grantees, the goals for this year, and a new way for exercise groups to get involved in the Big Blue Test initiative.  Have a listen.
