Your American Diabetes Association (ADA) families, friends and co-workers in and around the Houston area will join in a nationwide campaign to raise money to help fund diabetes research, education and advocacy. Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes
This event is the ADAâ€™s largest annual fundraiser. Every fall, thousands of people join in the fight against diabetes by walking and running in this family friendly event. Step Out is the only walk that supports ALL types of diabetes (type 1, type 2 & gestational diabetes). A Family Health and Fitness Festival will immediately follow the run and walk. Other activities at festival will include free health screenings, a kids zone, Red Strider Clubhouse, information on diabetes, activities for all ages and more!
Over 25.8 million children and adults in the US have diabetes - 1/3 of them donâ€™t know it, and over 79 million are pre-diabetic. Every 17 seconds someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with diabetes. If current trends continue, 1 in 3 children born today will develop this chronic disease in their lifetime.
REGISTER your walk team or as an individual TODAY! Participation is FREE. Raise $100+ and earn an official Step Out t-shirt. Donations are encouraged to help support diabetes research, advocacy, youth initiatives and education.
