ABOUT THE HUMMINGBIRD GALA
Our signature and showcase fundraiser, the 2017 Hummingbird Gala will be taking place on April 28, at the Moonflower Room in the Enjoy Centre. This premiere 500 person gala provides a wonderful opportunity to connect with researchers, politicians, health care professionals, stakeholders and of course people living with diabetes.
GEORGE CANYON—HONOURARY CHAIR AND MUSICAL GUEST
Canadian country music legend George Canyon is continually melding his love of family with his passion for music; his integrity and dedication to his family are reflected through the songs he writes and the stories he tells. A multi-JUNO award winner and PLATINUM selling artist, Canyon’s latest album I Got This finds him back in the saddle; a culmination of two years of writing, and working with incredibly talented writers, producers and musicians.
A Nova Scotia native, Canyon was recently inducted into the Nova Scotia Country Music Hall of Fame and has been widely decorated with a number of accolades including multiple CCMA and ECMA Awards in addition to his multiple JUNO Award wins. As the national spokesperson for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and a vocal advocate and supporter of the Canadian Military, Canyon was also presented with the CCMA “Humanitarian of the Year” Award in recognition of his philanthropic endeavours with both organizations.
ALBERTA DIABETES FOUNDATION
The Alberta Diabetes Foundation exists because we are not afraid to take risks. Albertans have always been innovators in diabetes research starting with the discovery of insulin. One of the greatest breakthroughs happened in Alberta because our Foundation funded the first successful islet transplant when others refused to do so. We then funded ten years of clinical trials helping establish the Edmonton Protocol. We continue to fund life-changing research in Alberta to find a cure for diabetes.
CANADIAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION
In 1953, what we know today as the Canadian Diabetes Association was formed. The Canadian Diabetes Association works to lead the fight against diabetes by helping people with diabetes live healthy lives while we work to find a cure. It encourages a healthy lifestyle as the best method of prevention, and represents the interests of those with diabetes to government, business, and the public.
