Every year we join the American Diabetes Association in their Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes event in the month of November. This year’s event was held on November 8, 2014 at Bill Frederick Park and was attended by 77 teams of over 1,000 individuals who raised over $ 200,000 for the American Diabetes Association.
The American Diabetes Association has held Step Out walks across the country for more than 20 years. Collectively, the walks have raised over $175,000,000.
About 26 million adults and children in the United States have diabetes, and 231,404 Americans die with diabetes as a contributing factor. We participate and promote this great event every year to raise awareness and education on the subject. You can help the American Diabetes Association stop diabetes by attending this walk. Besides the walk itself, the event has local entertainment, music, food, and family activities.
