About This Activity

On June 18, 2014, the Baraboo Lions Club is holding its 2nd annual Strides Against Diabetes Fun Run/Walk.  This is an evening event to raise awareness and to educate people on diabetes.  The funds raised will be used for the club's eye program (diabetes is the leading cause of preventable blindness), to purchase an educational program we can take into the schools to continue diabetes awareness and education that includes healthy eating and exercise and to offset the cost of this event. 


The funds we raised last year were used in helping purchase a PediaVision Screener for screening preschool children's eyes for any potential problems that may interfere with their education, educating the local Boys and Girls Club on diabetes prevention and healthy living, and offsetting the cost of holding the event.
