Take Steps to Defeat Diabetes

Filed under: Events — @ April 23, 2007

It’s easy to feel disheartened in the face of all the upsetting news out there about diabetes, namely:

*21 million Americans currently have it.
*It’s the fifth leading cause of death due to disease in the U.S.
*Over 80,000 people lose limbs due to diabetes.
*Nearly 10% of American adults currently have it

Rather than feel discouraged, why not step up–or more precisely, Step Out — and do something about it?

The American Diabetes Association will give you the chance to fight back through its annual Step Out to Fight Diabetes (formerly known as America’s Walk for Diabetes), which raises more than $20 million a year to support research, public information campaigns, and to aid those living with the disease.
