This year, more than 5,000 Southern California residents will come together to be part of the Stop Diabetes®movement at the Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes on Nov. 7 at Knott’s Berry Farm, the one-day signature fundraising walk benefiting the American Diabetes Association. Every dollar raised through Step Out plays an important role in supporting the Association’s mission: to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. “Diabetes is a devastating disease that touches us all,” said Allison Hickey, Orange County Market Director. “Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is such a wonderful event for friends and co-workers to come together and help change the future of diabetes. The camaraderie and spirit that is enjoyed by participating in this event is priceless.” Today, there are nearly 30 million Americans—including 250,000 in Orange County—whohave diabetes. While an estimated 21 million have been diagnosed, unfortunately, 8.1 million people are unaware that they have the disease. If current trends continue, one in three American adults will have diabetes by 2050. Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes provides an opportunity for employees, friends and family to come together for a fun, healthy activity. It’s an event for anyone who wants to support the Association and raise critical funds that will help Stop Diabetes. Thank you to our local presenting sponsor, UnitedHealthcare, and event sponsors, Knott’s Berry Farm, Fountain Valley Regional Hospital, Premier Exhibitions, Astra Zeneca, and Hass Avocadosfor their outstanding support.
