About This Activity

Walk, Run, Skip,Crawl, This is fun for all.


This 5k Color Run/Walk will benefit The Diabetic Kitchen. Diabetes affects 8.3% of Americans. 27% of Americans do not know they have this disease. The mission of the American Diabetic Association is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of the people affected. The Diabetic Kitchen is a support & management group for people with Diabetes. This support group offers support to people and also teaches them to manage diabetes. A support group as the Diabetic Kitchen is an important key to help someone struggling with this disease. On May 24, 2012 the website was launched with their D & T (Dine & Talk) concept. They have monthly meetings, prepare a diabetic friendly meal and discuss their thoughts, ideas and concerns with others. The idea for The Diabetic Kitchen was the idea of Nathaniel Mitchell Sr., a type 2 Diabetic. When he was diagnosed he choose to rise up and use the disease as a tool to reach others suffering.
