Kids living with Type 1 Diabetes can take no day off from pricking
their finger to draw blood to test or from taking some form of insulin
injection to keep them living a healthy life. And that is everyday
whether they are sick or sad, have an exam or a big game, whether it is
Christmas or their birthday.
It will remain that way until there is a cure. In watching the
strength of the hundreds of kids having to endure this – it has
inspired Karate Chops Diabetes to develop the No Day Off Challenge to
raise money to help cure diabetes.
The challenge is simple, do something for 4 days straight –
walk in the park, run, do push ups, paint, visit your grandmother – the
skies the limit, make it challenging and make it fun. Once completed,
make a $20 donation to the “No Day Off” challenge, then pick 3 other
people and you choose a challenge for them to take on 4 days.
However if you opt out or don’t complete the 4 days, make a $40
donation. So have fun, be creative and remember this is all for a
Here are some tips to successfully complete your challenge:
1) Each day that you complete a portion of your challenge, post it to social media
2) Use the "Buddy System" to text a friend each day to hold yourself accountable
3) Make it an interesting challenge or something you have always wanted to try
4) Continually remind those that you have challenged that they need to donate and challenge others.
