The success of the Central Ohio Diabetes Association is based on a partnership with the Central Ohio community. Our single largest source of income is contributions and community fundraising activities. All the money we raise stays in the community to help everyone and especially those in need.

We need your support to ensure that the services are available to help the community's increasing number of uninsured and under insured families. A contribution to the Central Ohio Diabetes Association is a chance to help someone with diabetes and perhaps save a life.
