Candyland with York University

Freedom is happy to announce it will be participating in Runway for Research Fall 2013 Show with York University and The Canadian Immunology Research Association (CIRA)

"The majority of Canadians diagnosed with diabetes today have type 2 diabetes. The likelihood of eveloping this type of diabetes can be reduced through healthy lifestyle choices such as losing excess weight, eating well, and exercising. Since the development of type 2 diabetes is closely related to obesity, maintaining a healthy weight is especially important."

Taking an ironic approach to World Diabetes Day, CIRA will be holding a fashion show themed: Candyland
Why we chose this theme: Raising awareness about Diabetes is important, but we would also like to raise awareness in how to decrease or delay diabetes. What is most often suggested is a healthier lifestyle, which includes a healthier diet. Although the theme of the Fashion show is "Candyland" we will be showcasing food sponsors, businesses and organizations that believe in healthy lifestyles and hey maybe there's a couple prizes available too.

When: November 22nd
Time: 6pm-10pm
Cost: 10$ at the door 5$ in advance
This event is a Casual/Dress event
