Dear Friends, I have been living successfully with Type 1 Diabetes since 1985. The management of my condition has been made possible in part by research funded through the ADA. I'm so excited that we can once again walk together, in person to raise awareness and the funds needed to continue the fight against Diabetes. Please join me as a walker or supporter!
I am asking you to support me in Step Out® because the American Diabetes Association® (ADA) means so much to me. And because it is one of the best ways to make a difference in the lives of our loved ones, families, friends and co-workers, I am asking you to make a contribution today. Together, we can raise awareness and support research bringing us closer to a cure.
Help Me Reach My Goal!
I walk because today diabetes will claim 200 American lives. I walk because every 21 seconds someone new is diagnosed with this serious chronic disease. I walk because my family and friends are among over 30 million adults and children in the United States who have diabetes.
When you donate:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child discriminated against in school because of diabetes.
- You fund life-saving research.
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes to live well.
By walking in this event, I hope to inspire others to join me to walk and support this cause. Thank you for making a generous donation to support my efforts and the ADA’s work that is so important to me.
