Wear Blue, Celebrate World Diabetes Day

Tomorrow international landmarks like the CN Tower and the Sydney Opera House will be lit up in blue for World Diabetes Day.

The day was designated back in 1991.

Kelly Hare of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation tells CHSJ News they are encouraging students and everyone to dress in blue. She says nationally you can take a picture of yourself dressed in blue and you can be entered into a contest. Hare says they have 10 youth ambassadors in New Brunswick and on the island will be pushing it through social media.
