Sneaker Friday

Wear your sneakers on Friday 17 November to support Kiwis living with diabetes

Sneaker Friday is back this Friday 17 November! Sneaker Friday is a fundraising event encouraging New Zealanders to support people living with diabetes. 

It's easy to get involved!

  1. Simply wear your sneakers on Sneaker Friday 
  2. Donate online to support Kiwis living with diabetes
  3. Check out Sneaker Friday events near you

Take part either individually or as a team by wearing your sneakers to work, to school or at play on Friday 17 November.  Simply head to our fundraising site, click "Join Sneaker Friday" and follow the instructions. 

You can also sign up to take part in one of the many Twilight Walks and events happening around the country, because being active is key to the prevention of diabetes and to help those living with diabetes to manage the condition.

Our mission is to support all New Zealanders to live well with diabetes, but we can’t do this without the help of generous, supportive and helpful Kiwis like you. So kick the work shoes off and put your sneakers on!
