Global Diabetes Walk - Let's walk together!

Quite recently I came accross an attractive leaflet about the first Global Diabetes Walk, which is to be held at the World Diabetes Day, throughout the world. The greek initiative is organized by the pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk A/S, World Diabetes Foundation and greek ngo's for people with diabetes. The event will begin on Sunday, November 14, 2004 at 12 pm, at Syntagma Square in Athens and will last for 30 minutes.
The aim of the walk is to break the international world record on such an event. The record for this kind of group activity, is still kept in Singapore, for "The New Paper Big Walk 2000" when 77.500 people joined the walk. Besides the chance of breaking such a record, the event aims to raise awareness to a healthy lifestyle for a better control of diabetes and the prevention of serious conditions to the general population, such as diabetes.
For those who are interested in participating in the Greek Diabetes Walk, you can enroll either on the spot, at the day of the walk from 10:30 am and on or you can submit the registration form by e-mail at (related sites: & Don't miss the chance of making the difference with your participation. See you all at the walk for diabetes on November 14!
