I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend, and the (for you too?) gorgeous weather that blessed us for World Diabetes Day 2010.

Here in San Francisco, Kelly Close and her team at Close Concerns collaborated with the local JDRF chapter, and ADA too, to bring us a fantastic rally at the Yerba Buena Rooftop Gardens near the SF Convention Center. It was a perfect evening:

You'll be happy to know that we surpassed our goal for the Big Blue Test video, with over 114,000 views by Nov. 14. Way to go, Diabetes Community!!

Also, for a little post-World Diabetes Day 2010 joy, watch awesome D-blogger George Simmons (aka @ninjabetic) sing his original song "That's My Type" with his son, here. We {heart} you too, George!


Oh, and btw: we're extending the Team Type 1 Rwanda Strip-A-Thon comments contest to the end of November, so there's plenty of time to donate and post a message for the kids in need.
