Diabetes NZ Fitbit MoveMeant Challenge 2019
Some of the New Zealand’s most famous faces and top business minds are stepping up this May for the Diabetes NZ annual Fitbit MoveMeant Challenge. Each competitor will wear a Fitbit Versa and try and out-step each other over two weeks in the hope of becoming the 2019 MoveMeant challenge champion.
According to new insights released by Diabetes NZ, diabetes now affects over 250,000 New Zealanders and a further one in four Kiwis are thought to have prediabetes. This annual challenge endeavours to raise awareness about the condition and the importance regular exercise has on the prevention (type 2 diabetes) and management of all diabetes.
This, the fourth challenge that Diabetes NZ with champion sponsor, Fitbit NZ, will partner with prominent New Zealanders to help drive awareness of diabetes in New Zealand through the Fitbit MoveMeant Challenge is one way to highlight the importance of movement and physical activity in both prevention (type 2 diabetes) and management of the condition.
The Fitbit MoveMeant Challenge will run from the 13th - 26th May.
