This event is inspired by one of the core focuses of the Lions Club International. Lions serve. It’s that simple, and it has been since we first began in 1917. Our clubs are places where individuals join together to give their valuable time and effort to improving their communities, and the world.
Lions from around the world voted to make diabetes our primary cause moving into the future. Once this was decided, we didn’t waste any time. We got right to work, educating communities on the issue—while establishing initiatives and programs to improve the lives of those living with diabetes and helping prevent others from developing type two diabetes.
