Join The Blue Balloon Challenge

By jimmyhutton on November 2, 2023 in News

The Medtronic Blue Balloon Challenge will be held at Bondi Beach Surf Bathers’ Life Saving Club on Sunday, November 12 from 10am-12pm. Eastern Suburbs locals are invited to enjoy a fun-filled morning of activities, education and charity to help raise global awareness about diabetes.

The event promises sugar-free refreshments and an opportunity to meet mascot Lenny the Lion, adding a playful and friendly aspect to the day. People will be able to participate in various physical activities like bouncing handball, kicking a soccer ball, playing table tennis and skipping, catering to different interests and ages. The challenge involves taking part in these activities while keeping a blue balloon in the air.

Living with diabetes can be described as a constant balancing act, much like keeping a balloon in the air. The #BlueBalloonChallenge aims to break the silence around this condition and educate beachgoers about the daily decisions made by those living with diabetes. When attendees film and tag @medtronicdiabetesaus using #BlueBalloonChallenge, Medtronic will donate five euros to the charity Life for a Child, making a real difference.
