Welcome to my fundraising page
For over 30 years, Step Out -Walk to Stop Diabetes through its fundraising, supports advancements in diabetes research, provides education programming and ensures that we can advocate for the over 34 million Americans living with diabetes.
This year’s Step Out will offer a virtually enhanced experience full of new challenges designed to inspire your commitment to our mission and get you physically moving! 2021 will mark 30 years of being connected and walking and running for a cure!
Family and friends can be true life lines for people living with diabetes — Studies show that people are able to manage their diabetes better when they have support from loved ones. It helps them to know they’re not going through it alone. This is the reason why I walk for Step Out: Walk to Stop diabetes. I walk for my family affected by diabetes especially my wife who has Type 2 Diabetes. It’s proven that People with type 1 or type 2 diabetes must work at managing it around the clock, watching how much they eat, monitoring blood sugar, taking medications, getting regular exercise, and not getting too stressed. It’s not a simple job or one that ever ends.
I know everyone can do it once they make up their mind. A lot of people out there know it run in their family and they think ‘Okay, I’m going to get it.’ No, it is not so. Get up, get out, and get moving. Walk, dance, bike, ride, swim or play ball with your friends and family. It doesnt matter what you do as log as you enjoy. I found ways to work activity into my day. I walk for 1 hour every morning and 30 minutes at night. It makes a big difference.
As you know, I’m participating in the 30th Anniversart Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes event and this year also marks my 9 years of walking and finding a cure. Will you support me by donating toward my goal and helpo fund the Association’s mission critical work?
I am committed to raising $1,000 dollars or more to become a Champion. Champions are leaders in the mission to make life better for people with diabetes. Whether you donate $25, 50 or $100, know that you contribution will help the Association fund research to preventm care and manage diabetes, deliver services to hundreds of communities and give a voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes.
Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.
