Thursday WEAR BLUE: Diabetes Awareness Month

November is Diabetes Awareness Month. All Crusaders will celebrate the day at school on Thursday, Nov. 18th by encouraging everyone to wear BLUE to raise awareness and show support for those affected by the condition. Yes, you can wear jeans too!

National Diabetes Month, a time when communities across the country team up to bring attention to diabetes. This year’s focus is on taking care of youth who have diabetes.

Diabetes is one of the most common chronic conditions in school-age youth in the United States, affecting about 193,000 youth under 20 years old. Regardless of their age, sometimes youth who have diabetes need support with their diabetes care.

Students will hear more about Diabetes Awareness Month in chapels this week!

In Christ Jesus,
