The BiG Blue Test!

The Big Blue Test starts today! It goes all the way through World Diabetes Day on November 14. One month of opportunities to help save lives of those less-fortunate living with diabetes. 

What is the Big Blue Test? 

It's simple, really! 

If you live with diabetes: 
  1. Do 14-20 minutes of activity (any kind of your choosing!)
  2. Do a blood test at the beginning and end of your activity. 
  3. Share your results at
If you don't live with diabetes:
  1. Do 14-20 minutes of activity (whatever you want to do!)
  2. Share your activity at
Every participant is a donation of diabetes supplies to those in need. 20,000 participants between now and November 14 equals $100,000 worth of donated supplies. Roche (makers of AccuChek) is the sponsor for the Big Blue Test.

  1. It is cool, as you mentioned, that for each test submitted a donation is made (if the 20,000 goal is met)...but even cooler is that you can take the test over and over. Every time you test/get active/test again, you can log it at!!
