This is an issue that's near to my heart (or should I say pancreatic beta cells ... sorry, nerd joke) because there's a whole lot of diabetes in my family.  So anything that we can do together to raise money to grow awareness is a good thing.  

WHO: The Boston American Diabetes Association is partnering with Fruit2O® water, the original zero-calorie, fruit-flavored water to help promote the fight to stop diabetes.

WHAT: As part of its Small Changes > Lifelong Results campaign, the Boston American Diabetes Association is asking residents to pledge to make a small change in their life that will have a big impact on their health. For every pledge collected at Harborfest and through Fruit2O’s page on Facebook®, Fruit2O will donate $1 to Boston’s American Diabetes Association organization, up to $5,000. The participating market that obtains the most pledges by August 15, 2010 will receive an additional $15,000 donation.

WHEN: Boston Harborfest
City Hall Plaza
Friday, July 2 through Monday, July 5

Friday: 9:00a.m.-7:00p.m
Saturday: 9:00a.m.- 5:00p.m
