The Custom KCD Medal
Our one of a kind medals are designed to
honour November 14th World Diabetes Day and the millions of people
around the world struggling to live with diabetes every day. The globe
represents the fact that diabetes affects people from all backgrounds and
cultures in every country around the world. The blue circle around the
earth is the international symbol for World Diabetes Day. The flame at the top
of the medal is the Flame of Hope which burns in London, Ontario, Canada and will continue to do so
until it is extinguished by the team that successfully cures diabetes.
The fist breaking through the board represents Karate Chops Diabetes ongoing
commitment to Fight for the Cure!
