Take the Big Blue Test! How Just 20 Minutes of Exercise Can Improve Your Blood Glucose

Twitter summary: Take the #BigBlueTest to get active, spread #diabetes awareness, and raise money for non-profits helping #PWD!

Want an easy and fun way to spread diabetes awareness, exercise, and help raise money for diabetes the same time? Take the Big Blue Test! The Big Blue Test encourages people with and without diabetes to get active and help raise money for diabetes. How does it work? Participants simply have to test their blood sugar (people without diabetes can skip this step), get active for 14-20 minutes, test their blood sugar again, and then share the results through the short Big Blue Test survey. For each survey entry (participants can take the survey more than once!), $1 is donated to diabetes non-profits providing supplies, services, and education to people with diabetes in need.

For anyone who wants to get even more involved, the amazing folks at the Diabetes Hands Foundation made it simple to share the Big Blue Test at school or the workplace. The Big Blue Test ends November 18, so we’re all rushing to get our survey results in soon! And for other ways to keep active, you can help keep track of your physical activity, by entering diaTribe’s own #dTGetsFit free giveaway to win a FitBit Flex or Jawbone Up fitness tracker. -AJW
