5K@IDF Run/Walk 2015

Congratulations to all finishers of the 5K@IDF held in Vancouver, British Columbia on 3 December 2015. Novo Nordisk would like to thank you for joining us in changing diabetes.

The 5K@IDF Run/Walk brought together World Diabetes Congress delegates and citizens of Vancouver to emphasize the need for increased physical activity and to help prevent diabetes and diabetes complications. This disease awareness activity provides participants with the opportunity to raise public awareness about the importance of a healthy lifestyle in preventing and controlling diabetes.

Over 700 WDC delegates and citizens of Vancouver participated in the 5K@IDF, which started and finished at Pacific Terrace at the Vancouver Convention Centre.

Participants at this year's edition of the 5K@IDF in Vancouver raised over €10,000 through the purchase of runner shirts. 100% of the proceeds from runner shirt sales will directly benefit the International Diabetes Federation's Life for a Child Programme. This program aims to provide young people with diabetes in developing countries with the diabetes supplies, care and education they need to survive.
