The annual Step Out Walk to stop Diabetes is coming up tomorrow on the campus of SIU-Edwardsville. It's a key fundraiser in the Metro East for the American Diabetes Association, and teams are gearing up for the October 5 event. The fundraising goal this year is $80,000, and they are 90% of the way there.
It's not too late to get a team together, or to walk solo. Rawnie Berry of the ADA says people can just show up and take part.
The walk starts at 9:30am. To sign up for the event, the best way is to go on-line, and you can still do so through a link at this story at Alton Daily News.com. You can also call the American Diabetes Association at 888-DIABETES to register over the phone.
