5K Run for Diabetes

5K Run for Diabetes

On July 13, 2019, The Global Lola Foundation will hold its first fundraiser in the Queens County of New York City. Proceeds will benefit Diabetes prevention and treatment in Africa and the urban communities of New York City.

Why We Run.

The Global Lola Foundation’s 1st Annual Global Africa 5K Charity Run (or Walk). Our organization was founded in memory of Lola Marson, who passed away suddenly from diabetes. Lola was a strong Black woman who took pride in her family and community as a social worker by day and a superwoman by night. In her memory, this event’s proceeds will support diabetes prevention, treatment by way of establishing a Testing & Prevention Center.

What to Expect.

You have the choice to run or walk to support this cause and you may participate in honor of a loved one who has survived diabetes complications or in memory of a loved one who has perhaps lost their battle.
