Carter Sinclair Organization Kicks-Off Its First Walkathon Event

Carter Sinclair Organization Kicks-Off Its First Walkathon Event

Carter Sinclair Org is challenging men and women to take part on their first walkathon event to raise funds to help fight diabetes. More than 500 diabetic young and old persons will be participating in the event. All funds raised will go to support the Organization’s task — to prevent diabetes and to improve the lives of all people with diabetes.

Individuals, family and friends are participating by helping raise funds for the Americans with diabetes.

“Diabetes Walkathon is for any individual or group of individuals who wants to enjoy a great day of walking ,” said Cathy Rogers, marketing Officer of Cartersinclair Org. “Together we can help find a cure for this deadly disease which affects so many people and have fun doing it. Exercise is an important part of any diabetes treatment plan. To avoid potential problems, check your blood sugar before, during and after exercise. Diabetes and exercise go hand in hand, at least when it comes to managing your diabetes. Exercise can help you improve your blood sugar control, as well as boost your overall fitness and reduce your risk of heart disease and nerve damage.  But diabetes and exercise pose unique challenges, too. Remember to track your blood sugar before, during and after exercise. Your records will reveal how your body responds to exercise — and help you prevent potentially dangerous blood sugar fluctuations.  Before jumping into a fitness program, get your doctor’s OK to exercise — especially if you’ve been inactive. Discuss with your doctor which activities you’re contemplating and the best time to exercise, as well as the potential impact of medications on your blood sugar as you become more active.” she said.

Do you think it is right for an employer to demand that employees attend charity events?

My company always demands that we attend charity events, (walk-a-thons, auctions, ect) even on our days off but there is nothing in our job descriptions that require it. Isn’t charity supposed to be from the heart, not the corporate office? What are your thoughts on this

No I think it is wrong. I had an employer who required that we make a donation to the United Way and I thought it was unfair
