On 10th November 2018, The Lions Club of Tropical Garden in collaboration with CIDA stride for Diabetes took part in the annual Pirates’ Week Parade in George Town, Grand Cayman. The contingent sought to draw awareness to diabetes and diabetes prevention.
Thousand of people from young to old stood on Harbour Drive, many dressed as Pirates and Wenches.
The participating Lions, all dressed in white in blue, distributed educational material on diabetes to the public.
LCTG Committee Chairperson Lion Maxine Bravo said: “Our goal is to provide the community with as much knowledge on diabetes care and prevention as possible”. People know a lot more about diabetes than they did 20years ago. These educational opportunities are therefore very important as they help us to take better care of ourselves and of each other.”
