Kitty Castellini Wins Roche Diabetes Care's Diabetes Heroes' Torchbearer Challenge
Date:12/2/2011

INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Roche Diabetes Care, makers of ACCU-CHEK products and services, is pleased to announce that Diabetes Living Today® Founder, President and CEO Kitty Castellini is the winner of Roche's inaugural Diabetes Heroes' Torchbearer Challenge.

Roche launched the online Diabetes Heroes program earlier this year to highlight and recognize historic and present-day individuals who have made important contributions to help others live full lives with diabetes. The site contains three groups: Trailblazers, Torchbearers and Everyday Heroes.

Trailblazers are scientists and researchers who have made important historic discoveries about how diabetes is diagnosed and treated. Torchbearers are present-day researchers, advocates and online community leaders who continue to blaze new trails in helping people with diabetes to live healthy, active lives. To increase the visibility of this very important group of modern-day heroes, Roche produced online video profiles of each Torchbearer and encouraged people to visit the site and "like" their favorite by Nov. 14, 2011, World Diabetes Day. Castellini received the most likes and as a result Roche will donate $10,000 in her name to the South Jersey JDRF Chapter.

"A diabetes hero is an ordinary person who finds the courage and strength to persevere and endure in spite of the overwhelming obstacles of diabetes," said Castellini.

The Diabetes Heroes site remains active and will continue to promote the incredible work being done by Kitty and her colleagues to assist people living with diabetes. Visitors to the Diabetes Heroes website may also add their own Everyday Hero by visiting the site and adding their own hero to the growing list.
