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!!!!!
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!!
