The Geneva Lake

Women's Association presents...

Preserving Life...

The Diabetes Outreach Challenge

In August 2010, the Geneva Lake Women's Association initiated the Diabetes Outreach Challenge.  The goal of this project was three-fold, yet specific, addressing the growing need in our community for:

1.  Education and Awareness - far too many people in our community are not aware of the symptoms to watch for, and the dangers of this often debilitating disease.

2.  Testing and Supply Support - far too many people who do know they have diabetes cannot manage the illness because of financial hardship.

3.  Wellness Activities - encouraging a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise, via fun, family friendly wellness activities, is a very productive way to spread the word about Diabetes care.

The Diabetes Outreach Committee has held several events, including a Zumbathon, Dining to Defeat Diabetes, and the original DOC kickoff fund raiser, "Get on Board Cruise" held on Gage Marine's 'Lady of the Lake' - raising over $18,000 to benefit the three DOC objectives mentioned above.

The DOC committee also, in partnership with Diabetes Specialists, arranged for testing of employees at Putnam Industries in Walworth County in October. Information emerged from the testing that resulted in four people finding out that they were, indeed, at risk.  Four lives possibly saved.

The Diabetes Outreach Challenge committee continues to plan events and activities that meet the goals of the objectives.  As those events are confirmed and scheduled, more information will appear on this website!

In the meantime, below are a few pictures from the DOC's recent activities!  Enjoy!
