2015 Step Out: A Walk to End Diabetes w/99.5 WYCD
Join us this year at the Detroit Zoo and Step Out with us! We Step Out to do our part to Stop Diabetes and take steps to improve our health! Participants are changing the future and making a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. You can too! Meet some of those individuals who lives you are changing in our Meet Our Red Striders Section. Our Red Striders are participants who walk with Diabetes.
Step Out participants are committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because they walk among us in our lives and at the event.
Once you register, you'll be given your very own web page and will have access to lots of tools to help you fundraise your Step Out Center. You'll be able to customize the page with your reason for walking, send emails to ask others to join you or donate, and even download Facebook and smart phone apps. And of course, your Step Out Specialists (ADA staff) will be here to help all along the way!
