Stepping Out to Stop Diabetes

Stepping Out to Stop Diabetes

11.19.12 | By Preet Bilinski

Diabetes affects so many people in so many ways. PhRMA joined participants from around the area for a recent Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes event. Stop Diabetes is the American Diabetes Association's movement to end the devastating toll that diabetes takes on the lives of millions of individuals and families across our nation. Last year, more than 150,000 participants from over 130 walk events across the country came together to raise over $20 million to Stop Diabetes!

There are many faces and aspects to Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes that all contribute to a community committed to doing their part to prevent and cure diabetes once and for all. Hear from participants of the walk, including those walking for themselves and those walking on behalf of others. All of the participants are searching for a cure; with efforts like this and continued research, hopefully the 221 medicines in development for diabetes put us one step closer to that cure.
