Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes

Saturday, October 11th 2014 - 12:00 am

Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes will be held October 11 at Washington Park in Springfield. The Greater Illinois American Diabetes Association is seeking teams and individual walkers to join the cause to raise awareness about diabetes and money to fight a disease that affects so many. To register, volunteer or to get more information, visit diabetes.org/stepoutcapitolcity or call 875-9011.

Registration begins at 9:00 am and the walk will begin at 10:00 am. Hundreds of people will get together to Stop Diabetes® for the nearly 26 million American children and adults with type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes and their families, friends, colleagues and caregivers.

Walkers secure donations from family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors. Proceeds benefit the Association, which funds diabetes research, delivers services to hundreds of communities, and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. Diabetes is a major cause of heart disease and stroke. It is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States.

Most Step Out participants join or form Corporate, Family, Club, School or Church Teams, but individual walkers are welcome, too. The American Diabetes Association will be awarding traveling trophies to the top teams in the family and friends division, as well as for the corporate and clubs and organizations division.
