Your Company can Make A Difference
Diabetes is one of the highest healthcare costs for your company and a major contributor to lost productivity. With nearly 30 million Americans living with diabetes, one out of five health care dollars is spent on diabetes care and management. This disease is placing a burden on the lives of many of your employees and their families in increasing numbers.
National Teams for the Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes are setting an example by encouraging employees to stay healthy and to make a difference in their communities. When a company commits to becoming a National Team, employees receive encouragement and support each step of the way. In addition, companies that are National Teams receive great marketing and branding benefits including a customized national team webpage to showcase your support.
All of our National Teams commit to having teams in multiple locations across the country and to raise funds to support the mission of the American Diabetes Association.
There are so many great reasons to start a National Team for the Step Out. Here are some of the benefits that our National Teams receive:
- A positive impact on your bottom line
- A healthier employee
- An opportunity to give back
- An increase in your company's brand and visibility
- Participating brings a sense of camaraderie, employee team building and morale boost
- A positive impact in your community by raising needed funding to support diabetes research, advocacy and education
