Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, 2013


Are you ready to put your best foot forward for diabetes awareness? Then join the tens of thousands who will participate in this year's Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes®. More than 120 communities are hosting walking events this fall, logging miles to raise funds for the American Diabetes Association's research, prevention, education, and advocacy programs. They'll also honor and support Red Striders—those who walk with diabetes. Last year's Step Out walks raised almost $24.5 million.

Want to sign up to walk, volunteer, or make a donation to your local Step Out event? Visit to get started. If you're already signed up, download the free Step Out app for iPhone and Android, which makes on-the-go fund-raising easy.
