Welcome to Step Out in Philadelphia!
The Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes here in Philadelphia is the largest Walk in the country! Walk with us and join us in committing to our vital mission, to STOP Diabetes and improve the lives of all those affected by diabetes. Join us November 1st for an interactive, fun-filled experience with a Kid's Zone for the whole family to enjoy, a Health Fest to learn about and support our diabetes efforts, vendors that are focused and committed to Stopping Diabetes, and celebrity appearances all at the Philadelphia Museum of Art at the Freedom from Diabetes concert post walk. Registration for Step Out will begin at 8am. There will be warm-up activities from 8-9:30am. Then, the walk will begin at 9:30am.
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 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 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!
