STEP OUT: Walk to Fight Diabetes!

Join walkers around Washington State and the United States this Fall. Because Together we can Stop Diabetes. One Step at a Time.



Last year more than 100,000 walkers from around the country joined in the fight against diabetes!

Each step they took and every dollar they raised helps the American Diabetes Association provide community based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.

Now it's your chance to become a part of Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes and start making your contribution to change the future of diabetes.

This Fall you can participate in one of 5 walks around Washington.
