http://BigBlueTest.org is a program of the Diabetes Hands Foundation. People with diabetes are invited to test their blood sugar, do 14-20 minutes of activity, test again and share the results.

By Nov. 14, 2010, this video received over 100,000 views. The program sponsor, Roche Diabetes Care (makers of ACCU-CHEK® diabetes products and services) made a donation for every view received up to $75,000.
