Be a Life Saver! Swim for Diabetes on April 26

Villager 5x6.5Improve your health while improving someone’s life! Diabetes is serious. If poorly controlled it can lead to heart disease, nerve damage, loss of limbs, blindness and even death.

To celebrate Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland’s 60th year, the non-profit organization will hold their 29th annual Swim for Diabetes fundraiser on April 26th at 10 pools for 60 hours! This is their key fundraiser for diabetes education and support as well as for Camp Ho Mita Koda for children with diabetes. Check out the details of this year’s fun event onwww.SwimforDiabetes.org

Participants can raise money by swimming lengths of the swimming pool, having fun walking in the water or just by getting active to prevent or manage diabetes! Swimmers get pledges from family, neighbors or businesses to support their efforts.  Donors can either pledge a certain amount of money per length, or make a flat donation to support your efforts.  100% of every dollar you raise stays right here in Northeast Ohio so that those affected by diabetes receive the support they need to live well with the disease.

One in every eight Cleveland adults has diabetes; 330,000 people in Cuyahoga County. Proceeds will provide diabetes education and support programs and Camp Ho Mita Koda for children with diabetes. 100% of every dollar you raise stays right here in Northeast Ohio so that those affected by diabetes receive the support they need to live well with the disease.

Diabetes Partnership of Cleveland, founded in 1954, is a local and independent nonprofit organization providing life-long programs and services to more than 8,000 children and adults with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes in Greater Cleveland each year.
