Do a head roll for diabetes

The lives of all people with diabetes, young and old, are often turned upside down. To draw more attention to diabetes, the Hippo & Friends type 1 diabetes fund, in collaboration with the Diabetes League, has devised a playful action. Do a head roll for diabetes during the Diabetes Awareness Month and support the research.

In this way you encourage people with diabetes. Their lives often feel like a roller coaster.
