Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes" Join our Team HFM!! The walk is taking place on Sunday Oct 24, 2010 at 10am

The 4.8 mile Walk route will run along the South Street Seaport Viaduct and across the Brooklyn Bridge. After a brief run through Brooklyn, walkers will once again head back over the historic Brooklyn Bridge headed toward the Seaport. The quintessential New York walk experience - two boroughs, one bridge and one Walk to... find a cure for children and adults living with Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.

Registration starts at 8:30 am and the Walk starts at 10:00 am. Performers will entertain you along the route, while volunteers provide water, fruit, words of comfort and appreciation for making a difference in the fight against diabetes. Sample sponsor products, educate yourself about diabetes and engage young people in the Youth Zone. We expect well over 3,000 walkers, their supporters and our dedicated volunteers to join us at this year’s event which will culminate with a free live concert performance at the Seaport from 12:00 - 3:00 PM.


Let's make change and help spread the awareness of Diabetes.
The numbers might surprise you. This year, 1.6 million new cases of diabetes will be diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older. That's 2 times the entire population of the city of San Francisco.

Step out: Walk to Fight Diabetes is the movement to end the devastating toll that diabetes takes on millions of individuals and families across our nation. It will inspire and mobilize the general public, volunteers, donors, corporations and the scientific and medical communities to rally around our cause and our call to "share, act, learn, and give." Through these actions, millions will have the chance to get involved and help raise awareness, promote healthy living, and raise money to fund educational outreach, advocacy efforts, and critical research that will ultimately stop diabetes once and for all.

Therefore, I know we all know at least one of more persons that has Diabetes. We can make a difference. Any donation or joining our team can help save lives. Every donation is never too little or too big, everyone can help in their own way. We encourage you to join our team for the fight against Diabetes.
