Red Striders

Red Strider Experience

Who is a Red Strider?

A Red Strider is someone living with type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes that walks and raises funds for Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes as an individual or part of a team! Being a Red Strider means you are not alone. With thousands of walkers who may share a similar story, and thousands more to support you, being a Red Strider can help with your first step or your millionth—in your fight to Stop Diabetes®!

By walking and raising money through Step Out, you are also providing much-needed funds for the American Diabetes Association's research, information, programs, and advocacy efforts that help people just like you. An impressive 73 percent of every dollar spent supports research, advocacy, and services for people affected by diabetes. Red Striders are encouraged to ask their loved ones to support them as they Step Out to Stop Diabetes!

How will you know if I am a Red Strider?

The American Diabetes Association wants to recognize everyone who lives with diabetes and showcase the courage it takes to live every day with this difficult disease. When you register for Step Out, you can mark the box stating that you are a Red Strider, or you may contact your local walk manager at 1-888-DIABETES and tell them you want to be recognized as a Red Strider.

ALL Red Striders will receive a FREE recognition gift on the day of your local Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes. As a Red Strider you are a VIP because YOU are the reason we walk and raise funds to Stop Diabetes!

Team Red

If you are looking for a team to join, some cities have started Team Red, which is a team made up of Red Striders and their loved ones who support them. Contact your local walk manager at 1-888-DIABETES to see if Team Red exists in your city and how you can join. If there is not a Team Red in your area, you could be the one to start it and encourage others to join you!

Join the Stop Diabetes® movement!

By participating in the Stop Diabetes movement, you will help build the momentum needed to achieve the audacious goal to put an end to diabetes once and for all. When you register and raise funds for Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, you have taken the first step in joining the movement to put an end to diabetes. But don't let your support stop at the Walk. Visit to learn more about the movement to Stop Diabetes, join the movement, and other ways you can stay involved with the Association throughout the year.
