This year, we are proud to state that Diabetes Singapore will have served the community for 50 years by 25th September 2021. To commemorate this momentous occasion, we will be launching an inaugural event, and we want to invite you to be a part of this Race against Diabetes!

Our signature event is a charity run called D2M. The name is a positive spin on Diabetes (Type) 2 Mellitus and also stands for Designed 2 Move (D2M), a powerful mantra to suggest that our body that is made up of 600 muscles is designed to be in motion. The objective is pure and simple - remove the stigma of diabetes, encourage exercise, and make it a talking point amongst friends, family members and colleagues - diabetics and non- diabetics alike. Essentially, raising voices to counter this silent epidemic. The D2M Race does not preclude non-diabetics and is designed to be inclusive, inspiring, and impressionable.

The run will be open to everyone in public. It will take place on the 10th of October 2021. Several preliminary pit-stops are already underway to build the momentum. These include talk themed around D2M (Desire 2 Motivate, Diets 2 Master, Downers 2 Mind, Decide 2 Moderate, Driven 2 Manage, Designed 2 Move), covering a variety of health management issues and will remain staple features of our diabetes education programme in years to come.
