Welcome to Step Out in Schlitz Park!
Every 17 seconds, someone is diagnosed with diabetes! If current trends don't change, children born in or after the year 2000 face the likelihood that 1 in 3 will develop diabetes. In the African-American and Hispanic Communities, the likelihood is 1 in 2. YOU can help us make a difference by joining us in the fight to Stop Diabetes today!
Our 2014 Step Out is a 5k (or 1 mile optional route) and will be held on Saturday, October 18th at SCHLITZ PARK in downtown Milwaukee, beginning at 8:30 AM. Join us as we walk along the beautiful Milwaukee RiverWalk and celebrate our Red Striders! Bring your friends and family and visit our sponsor booths to learn more about diabetes, healthy eating, diabetes and physical activity!
Step Out participants are committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 29 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 raise funds using 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. Fundraise just $100, and you will receive an official Step Out Walk t-shirt at the event! Please email Lidia at email@example.com or call at 414.778.5500 x6510 if you have any questions about this year's Step Out Walk.
