LCHC is attempting to form the LARGEST HUMAN BLUE RING of 7000+ (all wearing Blue T-shirts & Blue Caps) people who include adults and children with diabetes, school students, doctors, teachers, people from social organizations and other citizens. This will be the largest ever human ring to be formed to spread awareness on diabetes. To this effect a request for its inclusion in the Guinness Book of World Records and Limca Book of Records has already been placed. With this Human Ring of 7000+ people, we are in a position to set a new world record and create history. We believe that this record breaking human ring will draw world’s attention towards India’s efforts for raising awareness on diabetes.
