Canton Charge Team Up With Sanofi US for "Dribble to Stop Diabetes"
In a joint effort to increase diabetes awareness, the Canton Charge, NBA Development League, Sanofi US and the American Diabetes Association, came together once again to support Dribble to Stop Diabetes, a national campaign designed to encourage fans to live an active, healthy lifestyle and raise awareness about type 2 diabetes prevention and management along with the potentially serious health complications that are associated with the disease.
Our first event of season to celebrate the importance of this partnership was dubbed Dribble to Stop Diabetes Night! A night filled with in-game entertainment, giveaways, on-court contests and promotions designed to educate Charge fans on type 2 diabetes risk factors and prevention. Fans in attendance were also encouraged to swing by the Dribble to Stop Diabetes table on the concourse to take the Diabetes Risk Test.
Following up the successes of Dribble to Stop Diabetes Night at the Canton Civic Center, our very own Charge Girls joined forces with Dance Unlimited out of Akron Childrenís Hospitalís Expressive Therapy Center for a special event of their own. Staff from the Charge Front Office and Members from Sanofi US were all on hand to take part as boys and girls with special needs came together for special instruction, autographs and pictures with the Canton Charge Girls!
