Recently my Aunt Betty passed away after a long struggle against Diabetes. As a way to honor her memory, and help in the fight against Diabetes, many members of my family including myself are participating in the American Diabetes Association StepOut Walk to Fight Diabetes.
The StepOut walk will be held in Hudson, OH on September 20, 2008. We will be joining more than 100,000 participants in 180 cities nationwide who are walking to fight diabetes. The dollars raised through StepOut go towards research, education, and advocacy efforts to help the tens of millions of Americans affected by diabetes.
While I have not yet been diagnosed with Diabetes, it does run in my family so it is only a matter of time. If you could support me in this effort by making a donation, please follow the link below to my personal page and click on "Sponsor me":
