High Five to Stop Diabetes

Diabetes affects everyone—our family, our friends and our neighbors.

Diabetes affects our community, but people haven't opened up to talk about diabetes and share their story. Everyone has their own journey, but tapping into each others’ empowers us to raise our voices to Stop Diabetes®. We invite Coloradans to share in our collective story of how diabetes impacts our community simply by giving high fives!

The high five is a universal positive sign of support. High Five to Stop Diabetes emphasizes the importance of supporting those that are already living with the disease and encourages the wider community to understand how diabetes impacts all of us.

Thank you to Lt. Governor Joe Garcia for sharing his story:

See more faces of diabetes and hear from other Coloradans that have been impacted by diabetes.
