Step Out to Combat Diabetes




The Philadelphia Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes, a fundraiser for the American Diabetes Association presented by the pharmaceutical giant Merck on November 4 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, opens for registration at 7 a.m. A timed 5k run starts at 8:30 a.m., and the family-friendly walk starts at 9:30 a.m.

The Step Out Day experience includes starting line ceremonies with inspiring speakers, a well-marked walking route, fully stocked rest stops, refreshments and post-event celebrations. There will also be a health and wellness festival and other activities, just as in other similar events around the country on this day.

The Step Out Walk help diabetes research by raising awareness in the community about diabetes, funding life-saving research and helping people that are discriminated against because they have diabetes.
