Our team is called Sugar Free Nerds because well we are nerds. Nerds have a higher chance of getting type 2 diabetes. Our gaming habits, long work hours, and other fun activities don't count as good habits for a healthy life. So we are walking for some change and a healthier life. We are going to make a difference by raising some money for a great cause.
You can walk in person or virtually. Please consider joining our team to help make a difference.
