How your pledge helps
Your pledge helps the American Diabetes Association and Lions Clubs International lead the fight to prevent, diagnose and stop diabetes. It supports critical research to find a cure. It helps those with diabetes manage their disease and provides treatment for its complications. It supports diabetes information programs and advocacy efforts that support the nearly 30 million children and adults in the U.S. with diabetes and 86 million with pre-diabetes. It supports camps for children with diabetes. It gives a voice to those denied rights because of diabetes. Each organization helps in different and complimentary ways that make the fight better together and more far-reaching.

While the breadth of Lions Clubs International diabetes outreach is world-wide, your pledge also importantly supports its very critical diabetes programs in the Bay Area. It helps find the undiagnosed by funding accessible, free public diabetes screenings within our communities, including mobile glucose testing and eye examinations at public events. It helps the Lions Eye Foundation (San Francisco) preserve and restore the gift of sight by providing free ophthalmic examinations, operations and medications to the less fortunate members of our community.
100% goes to the cause of diabetes
Lions Clubs International has long partnered with the American Diabetes Association in raising funds for the cause of diabetes. It is proud to administer the Ride4Diabetes event. Ride4Diabetes pledge dollars go 100% to the cause of diabetes, since all Lions administrative costs are member supported and the planning and running of the ride event is all volunteer. Proceeds from Ride4Diabetes are appropriately split between the diabetes programs for maximum impact.
