“Simple Inspirations” is a new contest which challenges people living with diabetes to motivate newly diagnosed patients by sharing their most inspirational thoughts about living with the disease.
The goal of the contest is to enrich the lives of everyone who has diabetes — regardless of how long they’ve been diagnosed — and to demonstrate that people with diabetes can live a full and engaged life by effectively managing their condition.
One grand prize winner will meet international singing sensation Nick at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Los Angeles Walk to Cure Diabetes. The winner will also appear in a video with Nick to be launched on November 14, 2011 — World Diabetes Day.
“Through my work with Bayer, I am continually moved by the feedback I get from people who tell me that I’ve inspired them because of my diabetes,” said Nick. “In turn, I am just as motivated by their diabetes stories. It’s important to me to give back to others and support the diabetic community with opportunities to learn about diabetes and how to live a full life in spite of it.”
