ADA StepOut:Walk to Fight Diabetes
3rd ANNUAL ADA STEP OUT: WALK TO FIGHT DIABETES
Plan to join the Lions Clubs of District 4-C6 on SUNDAY, 10/10/10 in downtown San Jose for this fundraising run or walk and Healthy Living Fair at the Guadalupe River Park Arena Green adjacent to HP Pavilion.
Last year we had10 Lions Clubs form teams and we were one of the top fundraising teams for the ADA to accomplish its mission which is to prevent and cure diabetes and improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. The American Diabetes Association is a Lions District endorsed project. It is important for all Lions Clubs to participate, since diabetes is the leading cause of preventable blindness.
We will also have the Lions AJ Robinson Mobile Health Screening Unit at the Healthy Living Fair. We need helpers for either the 8 to 11 am shift or 11 am to 2 pm.
This epidemic affects 24 million Americans. Your support of the ADA Walk will help them dedicate more funds towards finding a cure for Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes as well as provide information, education, programs and services in our community.
Information is power and Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed by learning about diabetes and having a healthy, active lifestyle. Participating in Step Out can help our Lions members, friends, and neighbors to set an activity goal to walk daily as we are all at risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, already have diabetes, or know someone who has diabetes.
Contact your clubs team captain from last year about being a team captain again this year or be the team captain for your club by signing up at main.diabetes.org/stepoutsanjose.
