World Diabetes Day is celebrated each year on November 14. It is a global awareness campaign run by the International Diabetes Federation.

The theme for diabetes awareness month and World Diabetes Day 2019 is Family and Diabetes.

IDF is raising awareness of the impact that diabetes has on the family and support network of those affected, and promoting the role of the family in the management, care, prevention and education of diabetes.

Families are urged to learn more about the warning signs of diabetes and find out their risk of type 2 diabetes. Research conducted by IDF in 2018 discovered that parents would struggle to spot this serious life-long condition in their own children. Despite the majority of people surveyed having a family member with diabetes, an alarming four-in-five parents would have trouble recognising the warning signs. One-in-three wouldn’t spot them at all.

The findings underline the need for education and awareness to help people spot the diabetes warning signs early.

A lack of knowledge about diabetes means that spotting the warning signs is not just a problem for parents, but is an issue impacting a cross-section of society. This is a major concern, due to the signs being milder in type 2 diabetes, the most prevalent form of the condition, responsible for around 90% of all diabetes. One in two people currently living with diabetes are undiagnosed. The vast majority of these have type 2 diabetes.

Left untreated or unmanaged, diabetes can lead to life-changing complications. These include blindness, amputation, kidney failure, heart attack and stroke. Diabetes was responsible for four million deaths in 2017.

For November 2019, IDF is urging people to test their diabetes knowledge and assess their risk of type 2 diabetes through an online quiz and assessment.

The Annual Wednesday Night Running Club 11th Annual Handicap 5km Race Series will be held on:


  




    • Wednesday 18th September - 6pm



 




    • Wednesday 16th October - 6pm



 




    • Wednesday 13th November - 6pm



  These races are a fantastic opportunity for runners of ALL ABILITIES to improve their personal best 5km time. Due to handicapped start times, this race is a fast dash to the finish between runners of every ability. The past 9 winners have been runners of very varied pace and experience. This really is a competition for everyone!


 


All three races will begin and end on Safehaven Drive between West Bay Road and Esterley Tibbets Highway. The 5km route will have a staggered start based on runners pre-allocated start time. If you don't run with us on a Wednesday then get in touch and we can give you a handicap time.


 


There will be awards for the top 3 points scoring runners across the series, the overall winner also have their name engraved on the coveted Jim Kelly Trophy. There will also be trophies engraved with fastest male and female runners across the series. Awards will be presented at the WNRC Race Series dinner social (date TBC).


 


This event is open to all runners interested in participating. Runners not known to the club are asked to get in touch before the race to allocate handicaps. To be in contention for the overall series trophy, runners must have run with WNRC prior to the race series and make themselves known to a committee member. Runners who have not run with WNRC before are welcome to participate in the series but will only be able to win the fastest male and fastest female trophies awarded for the fastest time over the three races.


 


This year we are trying to go plastic free so please bring your own water for the end of the race. The planet will appreciate it.


 


Wednesday Night Running Club meets every Wednesday at 6pm outside World Gym (except for the 3 Wednesdays of the race series). The club is open to all levels of runners and is completely free. Come along any Wednesday and ask for Tony or Nicola. For more information on WNRC add us on Facebook or email wednesdaynightrunningclub@gmail.com

Established in 2009, World Pneumonia Day is marked every year on November 12th to:

  • Raise awareness about pneumonia, the world’s leading infectious killer of children under the age of 5
  • Promote interventions to protect against, prevent, and treat pneumonia and highlight proven approaches and solutions in need of additional resources and attention
  • Generate action, including continued donor investment, to combat pneumonia and other common, yet sometimes deadly, childhood diseases

Pneumonia is one of the leading causes of deaths in children under five years old despite being easily preventable and treatable. Although vaccines and other preventative efforts are decreasing the burden of the disease, much more work is still required. Those living in poor communities are at highest risk of pneumonia. Every child, regardless of where they are born, deserves access to life-saving vaccines and medicines.
