If you work in an office, you have the opportunity to help us collect many Big Blue Tests this year. Remember that each test collected results in one dollar donated to charity. You can make a difference in the lives of many by sharing the Big Blue Test at work!
Why Get Involved?
This question is easy. Why not? As you guys get active during your work day, you’re helping yourself, but you’re also helping others. For each Big Blue Test that is collected online or using the smartphone app, a donation is made to charities that are providing life-saving supplies and services to people with diabetes in need.
Here’s How to Do It:
It’s not too tough. And while you create a Big Blue Test campaign at the office you are not only helping your coworkers, you’re helping many people living with diabetes that are struggling to receive basic supplies and services. This is a time to rally your coworkers around an effort that has real and powerful outcomes! Download a log sheet here, or encourage your coworkers to log their Big Blue Tests using the iPhone or Android apps. Set up group exercise times. Remember that as little as 14 minutes of physical activity has the ability to lower blood glucose. Encourage everyone to log as many Big Blue Tests as they can between October 15th and November 30th.
