Welcome to my Step Out page!
I am asking you to support me in the 2021 virtual Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes® event because finding a cure for diabetes is urgent and personally means so much to me. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in early 2021 at the age of 23, and though managable, this disease has proven to be difficult and confusing to accept and adjust to. I am so grateful to have a compassionate support system, access to quality healthcare, and the ability to sustain a lifestyle suited to my diabetes. I know that this is not the case for all individuals living with diabetes, which is why I am participating in Step Out this year - to raise money for and awareness about this life-altering disease.
This year Step Out celebrates 30 years of making an impact in communities nationwide and I’m walking/running to champion the over 34 million Americans living with this terrible disease because they -we - need that support.
Join me in this mission and help me reach my goal! When you donate you make an immediate impact:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes.
- You advocate for a child with diabetes to have the same learning opportunities at school.
- You fund life-saving research that will bring us closer to a cure.
- You provide access to community programs and free resources that help those living with diabetes.
By participating in the virtual Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes event, I hope to inspire others to join me in this vital mission.
Thank you for your time and making a generous donation to this cause that is so important to me.
