To celebrate National Diabetes Month, we asked our Facebook community to share a special School Challenge… and the response was amazing. Take a look at these fantastic #WearBlueforDiabetes 5 Symptoms Challenge entries!
The 5 Symptoms Challenge
School had to sign up to the challenge and post a pic or video of the learners explaining the 5 symptoms of diabetes in the most innovative way, while using #WearBlueforDiabetes
We had schools from all over South Africa taking part in the challenge… and man oh man the learners came in guns blazing! It was not an easy task, but after much deliberation we have a winner…
