KANSAS Diabetes Walk–Topeka, Wichita, Overland Park

DIABETES WALK IN OVERLAND PARK, TOPEKA, AND WICHITA – sign up to join in!

Step Out and make a difference! Diabetes takes a devastating toll on more than 23 million adults and children in the US, and the number is growing every day. Diabetes is linked to nearly 300,000 deaths a ear, and increases the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, kidney disease and blindness. Chances are that a family member, friend or colleague has been touched by diabetes.

It’s time for Kansas to Take Steps Now to Fight Diabetes!

Join hundreds of people across the state in the annual signature event for the American Diabetes Association – Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes! The event raises funds to support the American Diabetes Association’s mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. The ADA’s mission is carried out through educational programs and services for the public, as well as workplace support, camps for children with diabetes, support groups and research grants to cure diabetes.
