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.

Recognition Gift Deadline: You have through October 22 to continue fundraising for an awesome Recognition Gift.
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.
