These events join a host of other national and global events to mark World Diabetes Day. IDF will host an NGO Briefing and hold a panel discussion at the UN to discuss access to essential medicines for children with diabetes in the developing world.

Organizers of Tu Diabetes and Diabetes Daily created an online petition requesting that Google create a special "doodle" logo in blue to raise awareness for World Diabetes Day.

Referring to the growing numbers with diabetes worldwide, Manny Hernandez of Tu Diabetes said "there are more than 250 million good reasons to do this. So come on Google, give diabetes a World Diabetes Day doodle."

Desert Dingo Racing, a team of Silicon Valley, California professionals, is making its second run at the Baja 1000, campaigning the official World Diabetes Day car in the race, a 1969 VW Beetle.

"We're doing another drive-a-thon fundraiser for IDF's education and awareness programs," said team co-founder Mike Aquino. "We've also teamed up with the Federacion Mexicana de Diabetes to distribute literature and 4,000 boxes of crayons that have the warning signs of diabetes printed on the back."

Candace Silvasy of Chattanooga, Tennessee, founder of Spa4Diabetes has launched her 'BlueBeauty' campaign in which spas from California to Pennsylvania are creating and promoting blue-themed spa treatments for World Diabetes Day.

"BlueBeauty is uniting the beauty and spa industry to start a global conversation about diabetes," Silvasy said. "Our goal is to make BlueBeauty do for diabetes what the Pink Ribbon did for breast cancer. For 2009, we're working with cosmetic companies to create BlueBeauty products and events with sales benefiting diabetes causes. My parents, who both have diabetes, inspired me to start this campaign."
