Manny has accepted the challenge to learn how to dance so that he and Andreina can celebrate Christmas Eve to a Salsa beat. Our own Emily Coles, community manager and award-winning ballroom dancer, has accepted the challenge to teach him.

But there’s no such thing as a free lunch in this life.

In return Manny and Emily are challenging you, supporters of TuDiabetes, EsTuDiabetes, the Big Blue Test, and Diabetes Advocates, to help us raise $12,000 by Christmas Eve by donating to the Diabetes Hands Foundation. Our stretch goal is $15,000.

Along the way to our goal(s) Manny and Emily will share videos progress reports. When we get to $12,000 Manny and Emily will reveal the complete dance video.

We’re starting today and our first target is $750. Help us get there by donating to the Diabetes Hands Foundation today and the first video will be released.

After that a new installment of the dance lessons will be released with every addition of $2000 raised.
