American Diabetes Wholesale, a discount retailer of diabetic supplies, donated $10,000 in diabetic supplies to support Andy Mandell (“Mr. Diabetes®”) and his effort to increase awareness about diabetes through the Defeat Diabetes Foundation.
Through his epic 10,000+ mile Wake Up and Walk® Tour of the perimeter of the U.S., Andy Mandell is raising awareness about diabetes, its prevention and the consequences of undiagnosed and/or poorly managed diabetes.
“We are very pleased to receive the free diabetic supplies from American Diabetes Wholesale,” said Andy Mandell, Mr. Diabetes® and Executive Director of Defeat Diabetes Foundation. Mandell added, “The diabetes testing supplies will get into the hands of people who really need them and will encourage more testing, which is key to improving the health of someone who has diabetes and avoiding serious complications of the disease.”
“It was a very easy decision to donate the diabetic supplies to Andy and his organization,” said Chris Maguire, co-founder of American Diabetes Wholesale. Mr. Maguire added, “We admire Mr. Diabetes® and his tireless effort and programs that have helped increase awareness about pre-diabetes, prevention and diabetes self management.”
American Diabetes Wholesale has a mission of keeping diabetes affordable for everyone by offering thousands of brand name diabetes and other health products at savings up to 60% off retail prices. Mr. Diabetes® will be finishing his 10,000+ mile journey on December 21, 2008 in Madeira Beach, Florida.
