November 14th - World Diabetes Day

Nov 14 – World Diabetes Day
 In recognition of World Diabetes Day, the Beach Boosters Group and its partners want to generate public awareness by once again lighting BLUE a Wasaga Beach Landmark to join the list of international edifices that are involved in this World Wide Event. 2010 marked the first year for Wasaga Beach to take part in WDD with Beach Booster, Wasaga Beach Lions Club and Partners lighting BLUE the Wasaga Dome.  This year we will light BLUE the beautiful Nancy Island Theatre to mark World Diabetes Day 2012.  November was chosen as the day to unite for World Diabetes Day (WDD), as it marks the birthday of Canadian Sir Frederick G. Banting, who along with Dr. Charles Best, are credited with the discovery of insulin in 1921 – Canada’s gift to the world! Don’t forget to share your comments, photos and videos on how you’ll be uniting for WDD here at
