I stepped out today to step on diabetes
BS - 111 this morning before going to the Diabetes Step out walk. I had some really good Mexican food last night - wife come home and I wanted to celebrate.
Each year the American Diabetes Association holds a fundraiser in communities called Step Out. The step out is a walk to raise funds to fight this disease. This was my first year of doing this and it was awesome.
I thought it would be good to share some of the faces there and let them speak for themselves and how much this means to us diabetics. I am not a professional writer as you can tell from these posts and I am also not a professional photographer - but what the heck here - goes.
People like myself who walk and also have diabetes - we are the honored
Eleven year old Type 1 Diabetic explaining what it is like to be a child living with diabetes and the technology that has helped make her life better. She too is a RED Strider and God bless her courage.
People who care
These are just the hundreds that show up who do not have diabetes but it has touched their lives and they walk to support us. God bless them for caring about all of us.
Those that sponsor the event
Those that entertained us
May God bless those who care for us diabetics and who had the courage to step out today in our honor and for us. May he grant those who can help find a cure with this money the courage and knowledge to do so!
