Yesterday officially kicked off American Diabetes Month® , which makes this a perfect time to thank our corporate supporters for joining us to raise awareness and change the future of diabetes!
Let’s see what our corporate sponsors are doing to help Stop Diabetes® this November. Your support of the companies listed below will benefit the American Diabetes Association and the Stop Diabetes movement, providing necessary funds for diabetes research, outreach programs in local communities and educational materials.
As presenting sponsor of this year’s American Diabetes Month “A Day in the Life of Diabetes” campaign, CVS/pharmacy is donating $1 to the Association for every photo uploaded to the mosaic on our Facebook page, up to $25,000. In addition, when you join their ExtraCare Advantage for Diabetes savings program, CVS/pharmacy will provide you with a $5 off coupon that can be used for any healthcare item in the store, as well as photo products.

Visit your local Walgreens during November and show your support of the Stop Diabetes movement by purchasing a “Way to Well” pin-up for $1. One hundred percent of your contribution will support diabetes research and community programs that help consumers lower their risk for type 2 diabetes. Last year’s campaign raised more than $1 million, and with your help, we can surpass that number. In addition, when you purchase select Boost products at Walgreens, a donation will be made to the Association, up to $20,000.
