Team Novo Nordisk Celebrates World Diabetes Day 2015

17 November 2015

Thank you for helping Team Novo Nordisk to circle the globe (and more!) for World Diabetes Day and to inspire and educate people with diabetes!

From November 1-14, we set out to log the kilometers you walk, run, ride and swim with the goal of reaching 40,000km– enough to circle the globe. You helped us surpass that goal, logging over 63,000km– circling the globe one and a half times!

Leading up to November 14, we shared tips on how our athletes manage exercise and diabetes, and asked you to log your kilometers and post photos with #WDDkm for a chance to win one of our four prizes and to help us inspire people affected by diabetes!

Check out your amazing achievements in the photos and statistics below!
