When people do the Big Blue Test, they experience an average drop blood sugar in blood sugar of about 20% and their participation translates into a donation made possible by the program sponsor (Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services).
The aim of the Big Blue Test grants is to help people with diabetes in need, especially those living in communities that are traditionally underserved and are at high risk for or have a high incidence of diabetes. The Big Blue Test Grant makes it possible for people living with diabetes to receive lifesaving supplies, medical tests, treatment, and patient education.
In 2012, when we reach our goal of 20,000 Big Blue Test results between October 15, 2012 and the end of Nov. 14, 2012 (World Diabetes Day), Diabetes Hands Foundation will award US$100,000 in grants to non-profit organizations in the US and overseas with the sponsorship of Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and service. Five grants of US$10,000 will be awarded to organizations in the US and two grants of US$25,000 will be awarded outside the US.
