This July Energizer Australia Pty. Ltd. (“Energizer”) will get behind National Diabetes Week for the fourth year in a row and will donate $1 from the purchase of every specially marked pack of Energizer® batteries to Diabetes Australia to support the organisation’s life-changing work.
The money raised will help Diabetes Australia assist people living with diabetes and fund critical diabetes research through the Diabetes Australia Research Program. The Program funds diabetes research into all facets of diabetes including, hopefully, a cure.
Energizer has a 120 year history of innovation in batteries and is currently the maker of the world’s longest lasting AA battery (Energizer® Ultimate Lithium™).
Diabetes Australia CEO Professor Greg Johnson welcomed Energizer’s support of National Diabetes Week for a fourth consecutive year.
“It is wonderful that Energizer is once again supporting Diabetes Australia in our efforts to raise awareness of diabetes and the need for more funding to support diabetes research,” Professor Greg Johnson said “Diabetes Australia is a charity and relies on long term support like this which is vital to sustaining our efforts,”
“A cure for diabetes remains the ultimate goal – and our national research program brings us closer each day to a breakthrough.”
Energizer business director David Pattison said the company was committed to supporting people with diabetes. “We are proud to stand with Diabetes Australia on their journey for a better future for people living with diabetes,” Mr Pattinson said.
