I thought this would be worth everyone's time to take a look at. I was unaware that these were being held in a city near my location. If it had not been for one of my lovely friends asking me when was our Step Out event, I'd still be unaware. Thank you, friend.

Last year more than 100,000 walkers from around the country joined in the fight against diabetes because they knew that together we can stop diabetes. Each step they took and every dollar they raised helps the American Diabetes Association provide community based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.

Now it's your chance to become a part of Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes and start making your contribution to change the future of diabetes.

Together we can Stop Diabetes. One Step at a Time.

This is great!! I'm really glad that you posted this; BIG THANKS! I'll mention this to my work and see if they want to form a group in Illinois. Who knows it could become an annual thing. I can't begin to explain how happy I am.

You are so very welcome my friend. I'm pretty excited about it myself.

I've stared up a team in Illinois called: Picture of Health. The reason for the name is because I like to take pictures and health is what we are all striving for.

Wow!!! Impressive Beerlily!!! There is no better motivation than doing something you are very passionate about. I wish you great success on another chapter in your incredible journey.

I just got done with the walk about 1 hour ago and I was very happy with the turn out of the event. My team: Picture of Health, raised over $300.00. GO US and GO ADA!
