Prevention Research Fun

We need your help to fight the type 2 diabetes and the obesity epidemic.

WHO ARE WE?

Eat For Keeps (EFK) and the N.Z Blood Sugar Foundation (NZBSF) are developing a fully integrated approach to tackling the diabetes and obesity epidemics.

EFK have helped 1,000’s of kiwi’s lose weight permanently and many of these have improved or reversed type 2 diabetic conditions. This has been achieved by focusing on blood-sugar control through ‘food and lifestyle’ skills.

THE EFK WELLNESS CHALLENGE

A cornerstone project for ‘Eat For Keeps’ and the N.Z Blood Sugar Foundation is a new and dynamic ‘Wellness Challenge’.

Combining fun, food and fitness, The ‘Eat For Keeps’ Wellness Challenge is delivered through an interactive experience, creating a platform for large communities of people to learn ‘life-saving’ health skills.

An initial pilot will be run in Tauranga in September for three months. Lessons learned from the pilot will enable the development of the free ‘National Challenge’, which will be available to all kiwis next year.

A key part of the pilot challenge is to recruit motivated people diagnosed as either pre-diabetic or diabetic. Utilising a combination of our current methods, motivational techniques and regular short bursts of exercise at their own level of ability. Based on past experience, many of the participants will either improve or reverse their condition.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We are now seeking support to provide funding to run the initial pilot.

By supporting this project you will be helping us to deliver a program to help fight these epidemics.

How will your support be used?

Any funds will be donated to the NZ Blood-Sugar Foundation and used for:

+ Developing and running the Challenge Website

+ Research Program

+ Resources and Prizes

Most of all, you will be part of a landmark ‘Wellness Challenge’ and potentially help 1,000’s of kiwis to improve their ‘health and life’.

NEXT STEPS

How you can help is by ‘giving a little’ and helping us to launch our pilot program.

Most of all, you will be part of a landmark ‘Wellness Challenge’ and potentially help 1,000’s of kiwis to improve their ‘health and life’.
