Every year the American Diabetes Association hosts Step Out which is their signature fundraising walk to stop diabetes. For over 20 years this walk has been going strong raising over $175,000,000 to stop diabetes. Diabetes is a disease in which the body does not produce or properly use insulin. Insulin converts sugar, starches and other food into energy for daily living. The causes of this disease are currently unknown but events like Step Out are making the necessary steps to fight this disease.
Over 120,000 people took place in last years walk which raised over 24 million dollars for the fight against diabetes. Chances are there is a walk in your town or near you and we encourage you to join in on the fight!
Not only is this walk great for the fight against diabetes but great for your health as well. People living with diabetes are encouraged to maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle. Insulin pump cases and cooling wristbands are great products that are on the market for people looking to lead a more active lifestyle.
