Don’t Forget to “Step Out” to Fight Diabetes

5921

This fall, the American Diabetes Association (ADA) is inviting people across the country  to “Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes” by participating in their one-day fund-raising walk, being held in more than 200 cities nationwide. The routes, which range from two to six miles, will be accessible to people of all ages and levels of mobility. All along the walk, participants will be supported by volunteers offering water, snacks, entertainment, and enthusiastic encouragement. The event draws a large contingency of individuals and teams composed of families, friends, and corporation employees, all walking and raising money in support of the ADA.

“In San Jose, California, we’re dedicated to finding a cure for diabetes,” said Ken Jones, Market President of Wells Fargo Bank and a participant in the walk. “Our fund-raising efforts will help fund the ADA’s research, education, and advocacy efforts, both in our community and across the country.” 

“Step Out to Fight Diabetes” offers an exciting experience for volunteers, participants, and all those who enjoy being part of a community with an important goal. To participate, register by visiting diabetes.org/stepout or call 888-DIABETES.
