We have had a significant demand to move our event to warmer months and help kick off run season so the 30K IN YOUR OWN WAY Virtual Event will be taking place in April and May this year.

Details for 30 Ks in 30 Days

Walk, run, bike, swim or any other self propelled method to cover 30 kilometres throughout April and May. Do it one kilometer per day, multiple kms over a few days, 10 kms three times ā€“ do it with agroup or on your own - the choice is yours!

Just make sure you have fun with it and share your journey on social media! We simply want you to help spread the word to create awareness and fundraising!

How does a Virtual Challenge Work?

Good question! A virtual race is an event where you register like anyother race except for this event, you can walk, run, ride, swim, ski or any self-propelled method you choose to complete the 30 Ks, anyplace you like and at any time you like. You will then be sent acustom designed medal (see below).

The Custom KCD Medal

Our oneof a kind medals are designed to honour Diabetes Awareness and the millions of people around the world struggling to live with diabetes every day. The blue circle is the international symbol for World Diabetes Day. The flame at the top of the medal is the Flame of Hopewhich burns in London, Ontario, Canada and will continue to do sountil it is extinguished by the team that successfully cures diabetes. The ā€œVā€ in the middle represents a symbol for Victories people testing their blood sugar, taking injections and medications achieve in their own way each day.
