Welcome to Step Out in Huizenga Park!
We Step Out to do our part to Stop Diabetes! Participants are changing the future and making a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes.
Step Out participants are committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because they walk among us in our lives and at the event.
Once you register, you'll be given your very own web page and will have access to lots of tools to help you fundraise your Step Out Center. You'll be able to customize the page with your reason for walking, send emails to ask others to join you or donate, and even download Facebook and smart phone apps. And of course, your Step Out Coaches Chrissy, Liz & Dawn (ADA staff) will be here to help all along the way!
At Step Out you will enjoy performances on our main stage, the "Fresh from Florida" Food Area brought to you by the Florida Department of Agriculture, a fantastic Kids Zone, Senior Pavilion, "Diabetes 101" panel, and Health Fest! Health Fest provides participants with access to health and wellness resources within our community and FREE medical screenings. This year's event is co-Chaired by Pat Nelson, Director of Strategic Accounts for AvMed and Roy Ripak, Market Vice President of Walgreens. Step Out Fort Lauderdale is presented by Walgreens.
In 2014 Fort
Lauderdale was named one of the best ADA Walks in America and inducted into an
elite group called the Dynamic Dozen!! We look forward to walking and fundraising with you to continue our impact in the fight against diabetes.
