StepOut: A Walk to Fight Diabetes. This event, one of the flagship initiatives of the American Diabetes Association, is a massive national push to raise donations to support diabetes prevention, and to fund research for a cure. The uplifting vibe and inspiring atmosphere on Saturday made the early wake-up call more than worth it, as dozens of our colleagues walked together for a cause near to our hearts.
The charity walk was the culmination of a two month initiative of ours (and our parent company, the iCan Group) called “iCan Stop Diabetes!” kicking off our commitment to supporting the programs of the American Diabetes Association. This summer we chose diabetes as a health issue we wanted to impact, knowing so many of our members battle the disease daily and will benefit from ADA’s critical programs.
As the walk began, the MC announced on stage that the “iCan Stop Diabetes!” team ranked in the top ten for corporations and groups in south Florida, raising well over $5,000 to fight this disease. I’m so proud of our team and all their success, but we see this as just the beginning of a long-term connection to the mission. Thanks so much to all of you who supported this effort!
