Diabetes Walk Set for this Saturday

Get your walking shoes ready! America's Walk for Diabetes is set for this Saturday at Mackenzie Park in Lubbock. The walk is a little over three miles, all within the park, so you won't be wandering across streets.

You can check in at 8:00 a.m. Saturday. For more information, you can call (806) 794-0691.

Each walker who brings in $100 in pledges gets a free t-shirt, and you have until the end of September to collect your donations. The American Diabetes Association says some of the money raised at this event goes to research in developing products like the Glucowatch, which tests blood sugar without the typical finger prick, but most of the money goes to fund programs which help patients with diabetes in the Lubbock area.
