Welcome to 2018 Step Out: DC


Thank You!

Thank you so much for your tremendous support of the DC Step Out Walk!  Your passion, commitment and energy made the day a huge success and we couldn't have done it without you!

Nearly 700 participants, volunteers, sponsors and spectators came together to raise close to $200,000 (and counting!) to fund critical research, advocacy efforts, programs and education to support all children and adults living with diabetes.

The event may be over, but we are still charging forward.  Here are some important updates and reminders:

Post-Event Fundraising: Your Participant Center will remain open for online fundraising, and cash/check donations can be sent to our local office at the address below.  Please include a note with your name so we can credit the gift to you.

Matching Gifts:  Take a minute to check our matching gift search and see if you or any of your donors work for a company that matches gifts. Some will even match what you collect as a participant.  No results?  Check with the HR or Benefits department to see if there's a matching program.

Event Photos and Videos:  Photos will be posted on Facebook as we get them.  Special thanks to our amazing photographers for capturing the excitement of the day.

Event Feedback:  Keep an eye on your email for a link to a post-event survey.  You can also reach out directly to us with any feedback.

Committee Recruitment:  Want to help plan the 2019 Step Out? Our Committee is always looking for new members to help with recruitment, publicity, logistics, fundraising and so much more.  If you or anyone you know is interested, contact Alex.

We hope you enjoyed the Step Out Walk as much as we enjoyed putting it on for you.  Thank you for bringing us closer to a life free of diabetes and all its burdens.
