We have had a significant demand to move our event to warmer months and we could all use some fresh air!  The 30K IN YOUR OWN WAY Virtual Event will be taking place in May this year. Walk, run, bike, swim, or any other self-propelled method to cover 30 kilometers throughout the month. Do it one kilometer per day, multiple km over a few days, 10 km three times ā€“ do it with a group 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 any other 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 a custom-designed medal (see below).

The Custom KCD Medal

Our one-of-a-kind medal is 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 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 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.

How can we make the event a success?

- Post your involvement in the 30 Ks throughout social media and challenge others to join

- Show off your custom medal!
