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.

Did you know that 1 in 3 children in the United States face 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.

Why Help Me 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.

When you walk, you help Stop Diabetes.
Walking is one of the easiest, most relaxing forms of exercise for many people, but especially for those living with diabetes. Walking helps control blood glucose levels in people with diabetes and improves overall quality of life. It is also an activity that can help prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes in people at risk.

You can walk almost anywhere at any time. And walking can give you more energy and help relieve stress. It?s a simple, positive way to improve your health. You don?t need expensive equipment ? just a good pair of walking shoes!

And walking for the cause helps raise funds for the mission of the American Diabetes Association: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

Scott, I just wanted to let you know I'll be speaking abotu diabetes in the Philly area on Sept 25th!

Here's a bit more about it: http://thebetesnow.badshoe.com/?p=607

Your campaign to raise funds is fantastic. I've been donating to ADA up here in Vermont, but will be moving down south soon (DC).

Wish I had time to visit, I will be working on the 25th.
I want to visit DC so much, but my lazy family does not. But I'm going on my own in November when they go away to Alabama to visit my brother in law.

Scott: I will definitely be making a contribution to your campaign. I just have a few financial hurdles to overcome over the next few weeks. I encourage others to do what they can to support Scott in his support of each of us.
