Since 2009, Boar's Head® Brand, a manufacturer of premium delicatessen products for over 100 years, has supported the Association and joined the fight to Stop Diabetes® by helping to spread the word about the importance of healthy eating and managing your diabetes.
For a third year, Boar's Head is supporting the American Diabetes Association Alert Day by once again donating $5 for every Diabetes Risk Test taken to help Stop Diabetes, up to $50,000. This promotion encourages family and friends to know their risk for diabetes while raising funds to help Stop Diabetes.
In addition, Boar's Head works to Stop Diabetes by distributing Diabetes Risk Tests in communities across the country. Boar's Head Distributors also work with their local grocery stores to hand out product samples and Risk Tests to store customers – encouraging them to know their risk and eat healthy. This community involvement and on-going education is essential as we work together to create a future free of this devastating disease.
As a National Promotional Sponsor, Boar's Head also supports the Association by dedicating a page on their website, boarshead.com/diabetes, to the Association. Not only does Boar's Head promote the Stop Diabetes movement and encourage involvement, they also provide healthy recipes for those dealing with or at risk for diabetes.
The American Diabetes Association thanks Boar's Head for all their efforts and continued support to Stop Diabetes.
