TO commemorate the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin, the Sikh Motorcycle Club of Canada is hosting a motorcycle ride in various cities and locations across Canada on July 31. The Sikh Motorcycle Club of British Columbia’s ride will start at 9:30 a.m. from Gur Sikh Temple at 33089 South Fraser Way in Abbotsford and finish at approximately 1 p.m. at Gurdwara
This national motorcycle ride, with support of other motorcycle clubs across Canada, will raise funds and awareness to help support the work led by Diabetes Canada. The goal is to raise $100,000 in recognition of the 100th anniversary.
The Sikh Motorcycle Club of Canada says it is proud to support the “We Can’t Wait Another 100 Years” campaign to commemorate the discovery of insulin and addresses the urgency about diabetes. However, insulin is not enough. It’s the starting line, not the finish line for diabetes.
“Diabetes Canada is grateful for the commitment and support of the Sikh Motorcycle Club of Canada and the riders here in British Columbia. These types of partnerships and events allow us to further support the 1.5 million British Columbians living with diabetes or prediabetes, ” says Sarah Reid, Regional Director, Diabetes Canada, BC/AB/YT/NWT.
