We received great news today and we wanted to share them with you: The Winners of the 32nd Annual Telly Awards have been announced and Diabetes Hands Foundation won two prizes for our Big Blue Test video!
The Telly Awards is a widely known and highly respected national and international competition. Last year, Diabetes Hands Foundation received two 2011 Telly Awards . In 2012, The Big Blue Test video was recognized with a Silver Award, the competition’s first prize, in the category of “Internet/Online Programs, Segments, or Promotional Pieces – Charitable/Not-for-profit” and with a Bronze award in the category of “Internet/Online Programs, Segments, or Promotional Pieces – Health and Wellness”.
The video,approximately 2 minutes long, was directed and edited by Sean Ross (http://ethosphane.com). It features children and adults who have diabetes surfing, running, swimming, climbing, hiking, dancing and cycling, while inviting people to do the Big Blue Test to help themselves and help people with diabetes in need. For every test completed, a donation was made to support people with diabetes in need. Roche Diabetes Care funded the program and the donations that helped save the lives of more than 8,000 people
This award winning video promoted the 2011 Big Blue Test, a program created by Diabetes Hands Foundation to raise awareness of the importance of exercise to help manage diabetes. To do the Big Blue Test, we invite people with diabetes to test their blood sugar, do 14-20 minutes of physical activity, test again and share the results on BigBlueTest.org
