Runway for Research: Candyland

Nov 22, 2013, 6pm-10pm

Canadian Immunology Research Association (CIRA) proudly presents Runway for Research Fall 2013.

"The majority of Canadians diagnosed with diabetes today have type 2 diabetes. The likelihood of developing this type of diabetes can be reduced through healthy lifestyle choices such as losing excess weight, eating well and exercising. Since the development of type 2 diabetes is closely related to obesity, maintaining a healthy weight is especially important." - hc-sc.gc.ca

Taking an ironic approach to World Diabetes Day, CIRA will be holding a fashion show themed: Candyland.

Why we chose this theme: Raising awareness about diabetes is important, but we would also like to raise awareness about how to decrease or delay diabetes. What is most often suggested is a healthier lifestyle, which includes a healthier diet. Although the theme of the fashion show is "Candyland", we will be showcasing food sponsors, businesses and organizations that believe in healthy lifestyles – and, hey, maybe there will be a couple prizes available, too.

Cost: $10 at the door; $5 in advance
*Proceeds will be donated to the Canadian Diabetes Association

This is a casual dress event, but please leave your workout gear and running shoes at home.
