YOUR PASSION LEADS TO IMPACT
"I walk because I was diagnosed with diabetes 21 years ago. Family and friends join me on my team and donate every year because they want a cure as much as I do. 19 years ago, I attended my first ADA sponsored camp. Camp gave me the opportunity to meet other kids with diabetes, many of whom have become lifelong friends. Camp gives all kids the chance to be around people just like them and learn how to manage their diabetes independently. My time at camp is still the highlight of the summer. I walk to help give back to the Association that has forever changed my life for the better." Nate Keeney, 12-year event participant
