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!"
