Walk in Foz marks World Diabetes Day

World Diabetes Day will be marked with a 5km walk, in Foz, on 13 November

The initiative is from the Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Service of the Porto Hospital and University Centre, who thus intend to start the Diabetes Week commemorations.

Helena Cardoso, director of the said Endocrinology Service, quoted by Rádio Nova, said that "it is important to mark the occasion and alert the population to the prevention and control strategies for Diabetes, for a healthier life".

"It is precisely with the realisation of the "World Diabetes Day" Walk that we intend to disclose that the practice of physical exercise is very important for the prevention of diabetes and its control.

The walk, aimed at the community with and without diabetes, will start at the Castelo do Queijo, at 10am, towards the Foz do Douro Fortress and return to the Castelo do Queijo. Participants should register directly at the counter next to the starting point and will receive a commemorative T-shirt.
