I’m very excited to announce that tomorrow afternoon, DiabetesMine will be co-sponsoring a World Diabetes Day event in San Francisco — we’ll be lighting up Coit Tower in blue!
For those of you not familiar with our fair city, Coit Tower is one of San Francisco’s most celebrated landmarks. It sits regally upon the crest of Telegraph Hill, overlooking the city, and was designed to resemble the nozzle of a fire hose to commemorate the gallant labors of the city’s firefighters in the 1906 earthquake fire that devastated the city. (It’s a phallic-looking thing, but quite beautiful, and you can see it from all over the city and at various angles from the Bay.)
Here in SF alone, about 52,000 adults and children (or 6.5% of the population) suffer from diabetes.
I’m delighted to be part of this dynamic global awareness campaign. Stop by and see me if you happen to be a San Francisco local? Read the press release here: Download wdd_san_francisco_press_release.pdf .
