KRDC is Fighting Diabetes through Exercise

The KIPDA Rural Diabetes Coalition’s Bullitt County Group wishes to increase community awareness of its plans for helping residents manage their type II diabetes. It is a well know fact that exercise, proper diet, and careful listening to one’s own body can help to manage type II diabetes. One project, sponsored by KRDC, is this announcement of a contest designed to encourage you to exercise.

Bernheim Forest has more than 30 miles of trails and numerous rest benches placed in memory of loved ones scattered throughout. The object of the contest is to visit and record the last name on the nameplate of the bench as well as the date and any other information available.

A person of any age may participate in the contest. There will be a prize of $100 to the person who creates the longest list of non-duplicated entries. In the event of a tie, the winner will be chosen in a random drawing. The date for final submission of lists will be OCTOBER 15, 2011.

Lists may be submitted by email to or by mail to:
KRDC Bullitt County Group, 570 Deer Park Way, Mt Washington, KY, 40047. If you are the winner, KRDC will need your contact information such as name, postal or email address, and phone number. Submissions by email will be confirmed by email and postal submissions will be confirmed by phone. If you are older than 50, you will be invited to a special event in November as well as other opportunities.

If you have Type II diabetes or wish additional information, please call (502) 930-2499.
