Normally these (usually charity) events have a rhyme with the month, such as Movember/November. Dry January doesn't have that same ring, though. I was just speculating on some months that could be tied to diabetes. January - no real rhyme. February - Fasting February (nice short month) or Full Fat February March - Low Starch march? April - no real rhyme May - no real rhyme (test every day in May?) June - no real rhyme (hide the spoon in June for no desserts?) July - dry July? August - no real rhyme September - no real rhyme October - sober October (booze taking a kicking again) November - Newcastle November? Good time to try that diet? No-carb November? December - no real rhyme. Diabetes December might be a campaigning point. Just reminded of this because I didn't get into Sober October and Movember is a bit pointless because I already have a moustache. However committing to doing something for a month can be a great motivator, especially for groups, so perhaps this forum could pick a couple? Any filling in for my lack of imagination is more than welcome.
