#DiabetesEmpowered

31 March 2014

When diagnosed with diabetes, many people think it means they won’t be able to live life the way they’d hoped. We want your help to EMPOWER everyone with diabetes!

Team Novo Nordisk was founded with the mission to inspire, educate and empower people affected by diabetes. And starting March 31, we will launch #DiabetesEmpowereda campaign to show the world that anyone living with diabetes can pursue their dreams.

See #DiabetesEmpowered photos here.


How it works

Share a photo that demonstrates how you are exercising/staying active/living to EMPOWER yourself or someone you know living with diabetes and post it to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Google+ with the hashtag #DiabetesEmpowered.

Examples of photos might include:

  • After you’ve climbed a challenging mountain.
  • After you just finished your first 5K run.
  • As you’re about to compete in your first Ironman event.
  • Or maybe you biked to work that day instead of driving.

Each month, Team Novo Nordisk will select the photo that best embodies the campaign’s mission to EMPOWER people with diabetes, and the winner will receive one of our monthly prizes, including autographed jerseys, cycling kits, hoodies, backpacks and more.

At the end of the year, an “all-star” panel, including Team Novo Nordisk athletes and staff, will assemble to review past winners and select the Grand Prize Winner.

The Grand Prize Winner will be made an “Honorary Member” of Team Novo Nordisk, and will receive the following*:

  • An all-expensepaid trip (only air and lodging)  to Team Novo Nordisk’s 2015 Training Camp (one person only).
  • 2015 TNN casual and athletic gear
  • A personalized discount code to the TNN online store
  • A “Welcome to the Team” letter signed by all TNN Pro and Elite athletes*.

PLEASE NOTE: we want to see your achievements! Please do not post photos showing any diabetes-related products or treatment, such as meters, pens, test strips, or injections — they will be disqualified.
