The Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes gives everyone in your community a chance to gather together to raise funds for diabetes research, advocacy and education.
The excitement starts building from the moment you arrive. You will be greeted by wonderful volunteers when you check in. Turn your money at check in and at many levels there are great recognition gifts including an event t-shirt when you reach the minimum suggested goal.
Next, it’s time to line up at the start line. You will hear inspirational speakers whose lives have been affected by diabetes and you will be surrounded by people from our community who share the same passion as you – to fight diabetes. What a great opportunity to show solidarity!
And then you’re off! You will walk along a beautiful route that is well marked and takes you through our community. The walk has support along the route and a water station for you in case you need to rehydrate.
After you have completed the walk, you will enjoy a festival of wellness exhibits, refreshments and entertainment. You will definitely want to bring your family to the walk and be a part of the celebration!
