I am asking you to support me in Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes® because this cause means so much to me.
I joined because diabetes ALMOST took my father from me. He has lived with diabetes and high blood pressure for many years, and as a result, he went into kidney failure. Luckily, I was able to donate a kidney to him in April of 2019. Unfotunately, so many others in the same situation may not have that opportunity.
Diabetes, affects so much more than I ever knew. My hope is to build awareness about this life altering disease.
Help Me Reach My Goal!
I walk because today alone over 4,100 people will be diagnosed and because more than 30 million adults and children in the United States are living with this terrible disease.
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 raise money. Thank you for making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.
