Step Out® Walk in Fort Lauderdale is the premier diabetes awareness and fundraising event in Florida. This year we have an audacious fundraising goal but, if we each do a little, together we can accomplish a lot, for those living with diabetes and prediabetes. Please continue fundraising until October 23rd, 2023 or until we reach our goal. Which ever comes first!
Bring the family, strollers, and well-behaved pets to this year’s Step Out Walk at Las Olas Oceanfront Park! The 3-mile Walk route takes you along the gorgeous sparkling ocean and balmy breezes of Fort Lauderdale beach. There will be hydration stations along the way and a warm welcome back to the park with cheers, music, giveaways, and fun.
Stop by the Wellness Village to get important health information, branded giveaways, and some fun samples and surprises. Visit the Kid’s Zone powered by Stanley and the Florida Panthers! They will have cool stuff and fun photo opps for kids.
Make a point of viewing our "Why I Walk" wall, where all participants are welcome to write the name of a person they care about who is living with diabetes or prediabetes who they are walking for.
Make a day of it and visit the Farmer’s Market adjacent to our Walk area. Perhaps you would like to cruise the beach on a bicycle. Rental bikes are stationed at the southeast corner of the Park ($5 per 30 minutes/$50 per day). There is also a Free Beach Shuttle that will transport you around Fort Lauderdale Beach. For more information, download the “LauderGo! Micro Mover” app from the App Store, Google Play, or visit: https://myfortlauderdalebeach.com/things-to-do/laudergo-micro-mover/ . You can also take an intercoastal boat ride with Water Taxi from their Bahia Mar pickup spot. For details about pick up locations, prices, and tickets which must be purchased in advance, visit watertaxi.com.
