World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day is celebrated every year on November 14. It is a global event that unites millions of people around the world to raise awareness of diabetes. Blue is the colour of the diabetes circle and the global symbol of diabetes.

To recognize this important day in Edmonton, the High Level Bridge will be lit up in blue on Friday, November 14. The Canadian Diabetes Association invites everyone to join them to see the spectacular bridge lit up!

If you wish to participate, meet at the front of the Alberta Legislature Building at 6:30 PM on Friday, November 14. We will then walk the bridge together as we connect with others and reflect on the importance of recognizing World Diabetes Day.

Light refreshments will be served; please dress for the weather as the temperature is predicted to be around -16C during that time.
