Join us in the fight to end diabetes!

Diabetes hurts too many people and too many families. At the American Diabetes Association, we’re fighting back with research, education, and advocacy. And we’re not stopping until there’s a cure.

Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes® is the premier walking fundraising event of the American Diabetes Association® (ADA) that creates a sense of unity and shared purpose in the fight to end diabetes. This event increases awareness, connects communities, contributes to diabetes prevention and management, and supports the ADA’s vision of a life free of diabetes and all its burdens. 

Please choose one of our local community events and register to walk with others who are passionate about the fight to end diabetes!
