Vancouver served as a beautiful backdrop to the International Diabetes Federation 2015 Run/Walk on December 3rd and the Tourism Vancouver team gathered to show our support. Participants at this year's edition of the 5K@IDF in Vancouver raised over €10,000 through the purchase of runner shirts to benefit the International Diabetes Federation's Life for a Child Program.

The 5K@IDF Run/Walk brought together World Diabetes Congress delegates and citizens of Vancouver to emphasize the need for increased physical activity and to help prevent diabetes and diabetes complications. There were a total of 714 participants in the 5K@IDF, which started and finished at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
