Small print: I am sorry to all of my Canadian readers but for this one it's US residents only, 18 years or older. One prize per person. Twelve winners will be chosen by random (Rafflecopter app). In the past I have attended blogger events hosted by Lilly, my travel, lodging and meals were covered by the company. I have also been a spokesperson for Lilly in the past, when I gave interviews about my tips for sleepovers for children with diabetes. No purchase is necessary to enter. No personal information is being collected by Lilly or Arden's Day. Prizes have no cash value.

Lace Up 4 Diabetes Shoe Laces Giveaway

Scott Benner


Novo Nordisk's #LaceUp4Diabetes campaign has been a huge success and I don't think that it's a big secret as to why, shoe laces adorn with blue diabetes circles are super %&*@ing amazing!

I was lucky enough to receive laces from Novo last week. My wife Kelly has a pair on her sneakers, Arden has a pair on her purple Vans and I would like it very much if one of you had the last pair.

Entries will be accepted until midnight EST on November 24th. To enter just share this page somewhere on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc) and then leave a comment on this blog post that includes your email address (Your comment is your entry). Good luck!


The fine print: One winner will be chosen at random by Arden using the time honored method of pulling a slip of paper from a paper bag. If the winner doesn't respond to email in a reasonable amount of time, Arden will re-pick. Giveaway is limited to U.S and Canadian residents.
