Welcome to Step Out in Downtown Aquarium!
October 22, 2014 News Update!
We walk with our 2014 Walk Ambassador!
Please welcome the Step Out 2014 Walk Ambassador, Annika Reeder-Holman! Annika will be leading the Denver Step Out excitement as a Youth Ambassador, Red Strider, Champion to Stop Diabetes and Team Captain! Annika is 10 years old and has been living and thriving with type 1 diabetes for four years. You can learn more about Annika by checking out her ADA Youth Ambassador Video here.

Check out why Red Strider Annika is fundraising for the Denver Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes this year: "I am the captain of Team Annika and a Champion to Stop Diabetes, having raised almost $2,000! The money you and I can raise will go to Colorado-based programs like Camp Colorado, a one week sleep away camp at Eagle Lake for children with type 1 diabetes. Camp Colorado, is fun for me to go to because I can be like any other kid at a summer camp and have fun doing the Vometron, the Blob, waterslide, human foosball, and gaga ball. Please donate today and hopefully we can save some lives!"
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.
One person can make a difference, and that one person can be YOU! In the next 24 hours, over 5,000 new cases of diabetes will be diagnosed. That's more than 3 friends, neighbors, co-workers or family members every minute of every day. Register to walk with us today and show your support for those living with 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 Specialists (ADA staff) will be here to help all along the way!
Our 2014 walk will once again be held on Saturday, November 1st at the Downtown Aquarium in Denver. Join us as we walk and run through beautiful downtown Denver and celebrate our Red Striders at a fun, family friendly Step Out event!
Don't forget about our 10K run!
