Red Striders are Why We Walk and Fundraise!

Red Striders are children and adults who have type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes. If you are a Red Strider, YOU are the reason we walk and raise funds through Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes to help find the cause and cure of this “silent disease.”

When you register for your local Step Out, be sure to select the Red Strider participation option in order to receive all of the latest and greatest information taking place for your local walk!

Celebrating Red Striders

Red Strider Logo

As a Red Strider you are a VIP because YOU are the reason we walk and raise funds to help Stop Diabetes®. You will be given your own personalized web page to tell your story and raise funds for the walk. You will also receive a special recognition gift on the day of your local walk and celebrate the courage it takes to live with diabetes every day!

For additional details about your local Red Strider program, please contact your Walk Manager at 1-888-DIABETES. Many walks provide meet and greet opportunities, research updates, and training walks for Red Striders.

 

THE AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCIATION IS HERE TO HELP!

At the American Diabetes Association, we work each and every day to imagine a life free of diabetes and all its burden. We are the only organization committed to helping children and adults with all types of diabetes, as well as those at risk.

Visit the About ADA page on the Step Out site or www.diabetes.org today to get the latest and greatest information about diabetes and how the Association is helping to imagine a life free of diabetes and all its burdens.

If you have diabetes and participate in the Step Out walk in your area, than you, like me, are a RED STRIDER!

Meet Christine Schaeberle, Founder of the Red Strider program.
