(WBNG Binghamton) A nationwide effort to stop diabetes is coming to Johnson City. Leanne Pinard was in the studio to talk about it.
Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes benefits the American Diabetes Association and is the signature one-day, fundraising and awareness walk taking place in 140 cities across the United States.
Participants join the Stop Diabetes® movement by registering and recruiting co-workers, friends and family members to walk and raise money for our mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.
The day of Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is a party to celebrate and honor Red Striders - walkers with type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes, the fundraising accomplishments of our teams and individuals, as well as an opportunity to promote awareness about the seriousness of diabetes in our local community.
FESTIVITIES: 1 mile route inside the Oakdale Mall, concerned about the distance, that's ok we encourage attendees to walk at a distance that fits their fitness level, continental breakfast, Team Photos, Red Strider Recognition, DJ, Vendors and Raffle Prizes.
THE GOAL: $75,000!
