Big Local Diabetes Events Weekend

There a couple of important events in the local diabetes community this weekend.
First, dine at any Phoenix area Souper Salad location Friday, July 23rd from 5 to 9 PM. Souper Salad will donate 10% of the night’s sales, plus tips and donations, to the American Diabetes Association. My wife, Sue, and I will be eating at the Souper Salad at 1649 S. Stapley in Mesa, just off 60. The 2011 Team Diabetes committee will be hosting there.
Then on Saturday, Jenny Crandell, 2010-11 Triabetes Captain will be hosting a Dawn Phenom at Life Time Fitness in Gilbert. A Dawn Phenom is an occasional gathering of people with diabetes sponsored by, among others, InsulInDependence. As they describe it:
The Dawn Phenom is perhaps the easiest way for people to stay inspired, and fit, with the help of the local diabetes community. Whether you are Type 1, Type 2, or a supporter of someone with diabetes, meet us monthly for exercising, socializing, and fun.
Here are the details as Jenny explains them:

Hey everyone!

Part of my "duties" as a triabetes team captain is to put on monthly get togethers where people can come and get some exercise and socialize. Whether you are diabetic or not, you are welcome to join us for our first Arizona Dawn Phenom event! Usually we'll meet and go for a walk/jog/run, but because AZ is so hot I got a REALLY cool deal for us!  Seriously, a free day pass to come swim, work out, hang out, and have refreshments?? What could be better? PLEASE COME!! Your whole family is welcome, and we'd love it if you'd invite a friend. If you know someone who is diabetic PLEASE invite them to come along. This will be a blast!

Just visit the link to register online. Remember, it is FREE! (If you need to you can register on the day of the event, but it would really help us out to know how many people are coming, so please try to register online first).
