The American Diabetes Association is the only non-profit organization supporting all 25.8 million Americans living with diabetes. The Association funds research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes; delivers services to hundreds of communities; provides objective and credible information; and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. Founded in 1940, our mission is to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes.

25.8 million children and adults in the United States-83% of the population-have diabetes
18.8 million people diagnosed
7.0 million people undiagnosed
1.9 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed in people aged 20 years and older in 2010.

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.

Lets make a Difference!!!!!

Gary Forbes, NBA Player is named 2011  Step Out Honorary Spokesperson and Maxine 2011 Step Out Youth Ambassador

Last year more than 130,000 walkers from around the country joined in the fight against diabetes knowing that together we can Stop Diabetes. Each step they took and every dollar they raised helped the American Diabetes Association provide community based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.

Now it's your chance to become a part of Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes and start making your contribution to change the future of diabetes.

Each of us has someone in our life living with Diabetes whether its a family member, friend, associate, coworker or neighbor . Its up to us to help fight back!!
