Hi Friends and Family - I'm asking graciously for your support for this year's Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes® because this cause means so much to me!
I joined Step Out in 2008 because the funds raised make a positive impact in people's lives, including my loved ones, families, friends and co-workers, who live with Type I and Type II diabetes everyday.
Help Me Reach My Goal. I walk today in support of my mother Cheryl, who has courageously lived with Type I diabetes all her life, including when there was little technology to help manage the disease. I walk because chances are you know someone who is affected by this condition, since 1 in 11 people in the US currently are diabetic.
When you donate:
- You spread awareness of the devastating effects 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.
This year, all donations up to $2,000 will be matched by Wings of Service, an amazing charity which assists people in need in the states of Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Thank you Wings! www.gwacs-de.org
By walking in this event, I hope to inspire others to join me to walk and raise funds for research and advocacy. Thank you for your support to this terrific cause!
