Walking-5K - Individual Age group/open
We Step Out to do our part to Stop Diabetes and take steps to improve our health! Participants are changing the future and making a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. You can too!
Step Out participants are committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because they walk among us in our lives and at the event.
Once you register, you'll be given your very own web page and will have access to lots of tools to help you fundraise your Step Out Center. You'll be able to customize the page with your reason for walking, send emails to ask others to join you or donate, and even download Facebook and smart phone apps. And of course, your Step Out Specialists (ADA staff) will be here to help all along the way!
Check back often for updates on the Step Out Walk!
PLEASE VISIT: www.diabetes.org/ncastepout to complete your registration for the walk.
The American Diabetes Association has launched a movement to Stop Diabetes: to stop it from stealing moments, hours and days from millions of people affected by diabetes. To stop the anxiety, fear and heartache it causes every day. To stop the blindness and amputations. To stop discrimination against people with diabetes. To stop it from haunting our children’s future and from stealing our loved ones all too soon. Get involved in the movement by forming a team to raise funds and walk to Stop Diabetes.
The Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes is a 3.1 mile walk. Check-in on October 17, 2015 will begin at 8 am and the walk starts at 10 am. Once you and your teammates arrive and check-in, you'll enter the National Harbor Waterfront and the pre-walk festivities. You'll find morning snacks, a team photo zone, and plenty of entertainment! Stop by our vendor tables and the lively kid zone. Stay tuned for music, warm-ups, and inspiring stories from those living with diabetes who are fighting hard to stop it.
