National Volunteeer Week 2016

This year, celebrating National Volunteer Week and making a difference in beating diabetes go hand in hand.

Be it a breakfast, bowls game, business lunch, BBQ, or any other gathering, hosting a Diabetes Research WA Be Extraordinary event any time between May 9 and 15 is an opportunity to spread the message of the power of giving regularly to local diabetes research.

As we celebrate 40 years of success and the raising of $4.5 million in 10 years – none of which would have been possible without many generous volunteers – our focus is on ensuring we can keep directing 80% of the funds we receive into critical research projects. Regular giving is the key to this.

Call (08) 9224 1006 for details about hosting a Be Extraordinary event this National Volunteer Week.

Diabetes Research WA is doing everything possible to find solutions,
but we need your help. Find out how you can contribute.
