Is anyone else doing a Step Out Walk this year? I was diagnosed January 2013 and I am very excited to be doing my first walk. Adding to my excitement is my daughter is flying in from Colorado to join me…so it will be a family affair!

I am looking forward to the fellowship and meeting other diabetics in my area!!! I live in Kansas City so I hope to meet some of you there!

Happy Walking!

I'm doing it-I figure I can handle the whole mile!! I'm not raising any money outside of what I will donate-with the rest of my life in turmoil, I just don't have the time!! It's in October her in Phoenix, and I hope that morning it's below 90 degrees outside!!

Everytime they have the walk here, I have something scheduled. I am going to try to find out well in advance when next years walk will be and participate.

Hi Kim! My husband and I are walking in our first Step Out walk on October 19th and we're very excited. I was diagnosed with Type 2 in August 2012. My husband works at a radio station and they are even one of the sponsors for the event. We've raised almost $600 so far. Should be a great day! Best of luck to you for your walk!!!

Glad you are doing that! I don't live anywhere near there, but kudos to you! Glad your daughter is going to be there too.

I don't know about the Step Out Walk but proud of you for doing it. Maybe if/when my legs get stronger I can do a walk like you. I know if I did, my daughter would be the first to join me too.

I'm doing it in my area. I was diagnosed 2 months ago, I live in California so I'm doing it at an amusement park in Buena Park over here :)
