All proceeds go to our partner, the American Diabetes Association, to fund research and outreach programs.The ADA’s impact in the fight to stop diabetes can be felt on every corner in every community. From backyards to schoolyards, from research laboratories to health care providers’ offices and from diagnosis to beyond, we are fighting to make sure that individuals, children and families across the country have the resources and care that they need.
