On November 2nd, hundreds of people will get together to Stop Diabetes® for the nearly 26 million American children and adults with type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes and their families, friends, colleagues and caregivers. Across Alabama and across the country, the American Diabetes Association will hold Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes events to raise awareness about diabetes and money to fight a disease that affects so many. Step Out will be at Samford University, at 800 Lakeshore Drive in Homewood. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and the walk starts at 9:00 a.m. Walkers secure donations from family members, friends, co-workers and neighbors. These proceeds benefit the Association, which funds diabetes research, delivers services to hundreds of communities, and gives voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes.
