In 3 weeks I will be participating in "Step Out:Walk to Fight Diabetes".
I am looking for sponsors. Any amount will help. The thing to understand is that Diabetes while treatable, is not curable. There is a great effort to find a cure and better educate people on what they can do to help prevent it. There are a number of people close to me who have diabetes. They mean the world to me, and so this is something small I can do to show my support for the something big they have to deal with every day.
The fact of the matter is this. 1 in 4 Americans has diabetes. Odds are someone you know may have diabetes, and you don't even know about it. Many people keep it to themselves and deal with it silently.
Do you part. If you can't walk with me, please consider a donation. You can donate online at [link]
If you are interested in walking, send me a note and I will get you links on how to find an event near you and how you can do your part to help.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
