Did you know that according to Webmd.com,  half of all Americans will develop diabetes or prediabetes by the year 2020? It's epidemic. Diabetes is killing more and more people everyday, and among those perishing are the very young.

The Penobscot Nation is being proactive in the awareness and fight against Diabetes.

On November 4, 2012, at 10AM, the 4th Annual Ralph K. Thomas 8K Run will take place, with proceeds going to the prevention and awareness of Diabetes. For those that can't run, a 2K walk is scheduled as well. Beautiful Penobscot baskets will be awarded to the first place and male and female winners, and other prizes will be awarded to winners in other divisions. Door prizes will also be drawn after the event.

Please take part. Here's the link to register: Penobscot Nation
