Lace Up 4 Diabetes Shoe Laces Giveaway


Novo Nordisk's #LaceUp4Diabetes campaign has been a huge success and I don't think that it's a big secret as to why, shoe laces adorn with blue diabetes circles are super %&*@ing amazing!

I was lucky enough to receive laces from Novo last week. My wife Kelly has a pair on her sneakers, Arden has a pair on her purple Vans and I would like it very much if one of you had the last pair.

Entries will be accepted until midnight EST on November 24th. To enter just share this page somewhere on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc) and then leave a comment on this blog post that includes your email address (Your comment is your entry). Good luck!


The fine print: One winner will be chosen at random by Arden using the time honored method of pulling a slip of paper from a paper bag. If the winner doesn't respond to email in a reasonable amount of time, Arden will re-pick. Giveaway is limited to U.S and Canadian residents.

Hope I win! These would be great on my son Aidan's football cleats for the Thankgiving football tournament in which hes playing. We had the team wear pink laces and socks for breast cancer awareness and maybe next year I can get laces for the whole team to wear in November for diabetes awareness month.
