Do you ever feel like you would love to volunteer to help others, but never seem to find the time? Here is a wonderful opportunity to change this! The entire family can be involved and learn about this debilitating disease which affects millions around us. The American Diabetes Association hosts Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes every year in Atlanta at Grant Park.
Together we can stop diabetes. One Step at a Time.
I am walking and raising funds for the American Diabetes Association’s signature fundraising walk, Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes. Every step I take and every dollar I raise will make a difference in the lives of 23.6 million Americans living with diabetes. By making a donation on my behalf, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.
No matter how small or large, your generous donation will help us stop diabetes and is greatly appreciated.
Did you know that 1 in 3 children in the United States faces a future with diabetes?
The Association works everyday to change the frightening future that diabetes has in store, but we need your help. Please make a donation to my fundraising efforts. Together we can stop diabetes.

Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is needed to convert sugar, starches and other food into energy needed for daily life. The cause of diabetes continues to be a mystery, although both genetics and environmental factors appear to play roles. There are 23.6 million Americans living with diabetes, a disease that is outpacing heart disease, cancer and AIDS. Diabetes is a disease that has deadly serious consequences, and there is no cure.
