Welcome to Wellcare's National Team

Company logo

Last year, 22 WellCare teams in nine states comprised of over 350 associates, friends and family members raised money to help fight diabetes. Associate fundraising combined with a contribution from WellCare and The WellCare Community Foundation brought the total donated to more than $126,000. We are very proud of our participation and applaud our many associates who supported this important initiative through our WellCare Associate Volunteer Efforts (WAVE).

In 2014, we are continuing to support the American Diabetes Association (ADA), and hope you will join us as we raise funds and walk together to find a cure for this disease. Nearly 26 million adults and children in the United States have diabetes. This disease affects so many of us, and the vulnerable populations we serve.

Invite your friends and family to participate in an ADA Step Out walk in your local community. If there isn't a walk near your home, you can still join a WellCare team in any city and participate virtually.

Walks begin as early as May in Lexington and occur throughout the country through November. The walk in Tampa is October 18, 2014 at Curtis Hixon Park.
