Dribble to Stop Diabetes
The NBA encourages basketball fans to live an active, healthy lifestyle and raise awareness about diabetes prevention and management.
NBA/WNBA FIT, the NBA, WNBA and NBA Development League are teaming up with Sanofi US and the American Diabetes Association in a strategic alliance to create awareness for this disease. We will work to promote the importance of healthy, active lifestyles, as well as diabetes awareness, prevention and management through a new campaign, Dribble to Stop Diabetes.
Ambassadors for the campaign include Carlos Boozer of the Chicago Bulls, Tamika Catchings of the Indiana Fever, NBA Legend Bob Lanier and New Jersey Nets Head Coach Avery Johnson. -- all of whom have personal connections with diabetes either through their own struggle or that of a family member.
