World Diabetes Day – the Blue Balloon Challenge

The Blue Balloon Challenge is back for another year in time for World Diabetes Day on 14 November. The popular motif captured the hearts of the diabetes community when it was first launched in 2021. To date, the campaign has raised €200,000 for Life For A Child [], which helps children living with diabetes in countries where access to insulin and diabetes supplies aren’t guaranteed. Any support will help raise awareness for diabetes and gather life-saving funds for people with diabetes across the globe.
