an ounce of prevention...

Tuesday was a great day! We reached a pretty awesome milestone welcoming our 1,000th facebook fan. But even more awesome, was finding out what charity would be receiving a special donation through our facebook contest which began 2 months ago.  

Ever hear the old saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure? Well our winning charity is pushing that exact message. The Skinny Gene Project is fighting type 2 diabetes one person at a time. However, unlike other diabetes organizations whose primary concern is disease management, the smart folks at Skinny Gene is  focused on screening, educating, and treating at-risk individuals before they are diagnosed with the disease. Brilliant! Educate at-risk individuals and hopefully PREVENT them from getting the disease. 

In a society where many children are obese and many of us are eating beyond our means, this organization is a breath of fresh air. I'm very excited to learn more. I never realized how seemingly unrelated ailments
could be a potential early warning sign to diabetes. I encourage readers to visit their website and learn more. It's a great find.

Unsure if you are at risk? Look over this very easy questionnaire. It could change your life.  

Special thanks to Samantha Doerfler, Marlayna Bollinger & Lindsey Geraghty for bringing the message to us! We are proud to help support such a great cause!
