Strikeout Diabetes

Every 21 seconds, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with diabetes. To raise awareness, Sun Life is once again teaming up with Royals Charities for the Strikeout Diabetes fundraising campaign, which benefits a different Kansas City-area nonprofit organization each year.

In 2019, Strikeout Diabetes supported the YMCA of Greater Kansas City's efforts to improve the health and well-being of the community, specifically through the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program. For each strikeout thrown by a Kansas City pitcher during the regular season, Sun Life will donate $21.

Let's cheer on our Royals pitchers as we join efforts in the fight against diabetes! Join us and use #StrikeoutDiabetes on social media. For more information about Sun Life's commitment to diabetes, please visit
