Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes

I’m taking a break from the Teams that Do Know Jack series today to get a little bit off-topic.  This fall I will be joining more than 130,000 walkers from across the United States in this year’s Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes to raise money for the American Diabetes Association.

I am asking for your help. By making a donation, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.

So why should I be concerned about diabetes?

  • There are 25.8 million Americans currently living with diabetes.
  • Diabetes is currently outpacing heart disease, cancer and AIDS.
  • If nothing is done, one in three children born in the year 2000 will develop diabetes in their lifetime.

With the help of people like you, the American Diabetes Association can raise over $20 million to help Stop Diabetes.

So how can I help?  It’s very simple.  You can click on the image below to make a secure donation.  It is 100% tax deductible, and every little bit helps!

Together we can Stop Diabetes. One step at a time.  Thank you!
