Dancing With the Stars’ Drew Lachey will Judge Dancin’ to Change Diabetes

ABC’s Dancing with the Stars champion Drew Lachey has teamed up with Novo Nordisk to launch the first national online video contest to increase diabetes awareness, Dancin’ to Change Diabetes.

The contest invites people to create and submit videos of the cool moves that help them stay active and healthy.

Lachey will lead a panel of judges in selecting three video finalists who will then be voted on by the public. The winning dance clip will be announced in San Francisco on Saturday, June 7, 2008, during the official ceremony of the Novo Nordisk Changing Diabetes® Bus World Tour and Diabetes Village on Pier 39, East Park.

Catch some boogie fever…
