Today I signed up for the Telus/JDRF Walk for Diabetes. This is an event where diabetics (or people close to diabetics) get together to fundraise and raise awareness for diabetes. We spend the day getting free stuff (glucometers and the like), walking around the lake, talking, and having fun. I, for one, love this event, even though I have only been once. It's one of the silver linings in the big dark, miserable cloud of diabetes.
