Words of Wisdom

"We are driven by self-interest, it’s necessary to survive. But we need wise self-interest that is generous and co-operative, taking others’ interests into account. Co-operation comes from friendship, friendship comes from trust, and trust comes from kind-heartedness. Once you have a genuine sense of concern for others, there’s no room for cheating, bullying or exploitation."
Dalai Lama

Team Diabetes


Since 2000, #TeamDiabetes members have been leaders in the fight against diabetes, raising much needed funds for the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Walk, run, hike or bike in exciting international and Canadian destinations and become part of a dedicated team that is making a difference!



My sister and I participating in the 2006 Honolulu Marathon
with Team Diabetes Canada
That was an amazing journey! I am thrilled to be participating once again with Team Diabetes in the
2013 Amsterdam Marathon.

This time not only with my sister Joyce but also with my
16 year old nephew Brian who was diagnosed with
Type 1 Juvenile diabetes when he was just over 1 year of age.
Together we have committed to raising $18,000 for the
Canadian Diabetes Association
