Sun Life Dunk 4 Diabetes

Boston Celtics teams up with Sun Life Financial for 5th annual #SunLifeDunk4Diabetes campaign

Celtics dunks in November will generate thousands of dollars for Greater Boston YMCA

Last year, #SunLifeDunk4Diabetes raised more than $75,000 for the program and has raised more than $290,000 to date. The campaign is part of Sun Life’s global commitment to slowing the advance of diabetes and its related complications by improving the health and wellness of the community through organizations like the Greater Boston YMCA and its Diabetes Prevention Program.

Over the past five years, Sun Life has donated over $17 million to community organizations across the globe, supporting their efforts to educate people about diabetes, prevent type 2, and empower those living with type 1 to take control of their health.

YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program

The YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program helps adults reduce the risk for type 2 diabetes by providing participants the tools, resources, support and education necessary to change their lifestyles, before costly medical bills and medications become a daily reality. The year-long program consists of 16, one-hour weekly classroom sessions followed by eight monthly sessions. A trained Y Lifestyle Coach teaches participants strategies for healthy living, physical activity and other lifestyle changes.
