106.5 The Arch is proud to support the 2014 Step Out: Metro East, IL event coming October 4th!
Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is the ADA’s signature fundraising walk. The event has been taking place for more than 20 years and has raised more than $175,000,000 to Stop Diabetes! Walk day is a huge celebration of the fundraising efforts YOU put into this event. Step Out is filled with music, food, kids activities, local entertainment and most importantly, the company of hundreds of people who truly understand the impact of diabetes.
This year’s walk will be held on Saturday, October 4th
at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) from 8:30am – 11:30am!
The walk starts and ends in Parking Lot A with either a 1.5 or 3 mile route through the Botanical Gardens. There will also be a Health & Wellness Fair, Kids Zone, food, and entertainment!
Step Out participants are committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because they walk among us in our lives and at the event.
Once you register, you’ll be given your very own web page and will have access to lots of tools to help you fundraise your Step Out Center. You’ll be able to customize the page with your reason for walking, send emails to ask others to join you or donate, and even download Facebook and smart phone apps. And of course, your Step Out Specialists (ADA staff) will be here to help all along the way!
