The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is challenging the Greater Philadelphia region to join the movement to Stop Diabetes by participating in the 2010 Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes on Saturday, October 2. Presented by Independence Blue Cross, the 5K walk is a one-day signature fundraising event that benefits the ADA.
The 2010 Greater Philadelphia Step Out walk is one of more than 150 walks held across the United States. Last year, the Philadelphia walk broke national records as the largest in participation and fundraising. More than 3,500 people were in attendance and a number of local corporate and family-and-friend teams raised more than $550,000.
This year the walk is on Saturday, October 2, 2010 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Check-in starts at 8:00 AM and the walk begins at 9:00 AM. To register for the 2010 Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes in the Philadelphia area, please call 610-828-5003 x4645, or visit www.diabetes.org/stepout.
