Diabetes walk to celebrate 19th anniversary

From American Diabetes Association:

The annual Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, a fundraising walk for the American Diabetes Association, returns to Lubbock September 22nd.  Check-In is at 8:00 a.m. and the Walk Start is at 9:00 a.m. at the Mackenzie Park baseball f.ields

The American Diabetes Association is the only organization that fights all types of diabetes – type 1, type 2, gestational, and pre-diabetes. Every 17 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes. You know someone with diabetes! There are 25.8 million people in the U.S. who have diabetes, and it is a major cause of death by disease! In Lubbock alone, over 30,300 people have diabetes. Thousands will go blind, lose limbs, or suffer devastating complications such as heart and kidney failure. Diabetes is a national and local tragedy, and it has no cure … yet.

Your American Diabetes Association, through Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes, is funding the very costly research to find a cure! Please join us and support the Walk that is supporting the millions of children and adults with diabetes through research, advocacy, youth initiatives and education. Lubbock's Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is celebrating its 19th anniversary!

We have been in the top 3 walks in the nation for the past 3 years! Our Goal for Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is to raise $290,000 with more than 2,000 walkers in Lubbock! Help us reach our goal! To reach our goal – we are asking every walker to raise a minimum of $125.

There are 125 Step Out events around the country. For more information or to register for a walk in your community, visit www.diabetes.org/stepout or call (888) DIABETES (888-342-2383).
