American Diabetes Association Presents InteractiveMD With “Top New Team” Award

Last month, our team here at InteractiveMD was honored by the American Diabetes Association for our achievement at the 2010 Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes!, the ADA’s flagship annual fundraising initiative. As a young organization, it was thrilling to be recognized as the “Top New Team” in the area, both for the total funds we raised for the ADA, and for raising awareness for this cause in creative and innovative ways.

“We’d like to extend a rousing thank you to the Interactive MD team for their support of the 2010 Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes!”, said Chrissy Cohen, Associate Manager of the American Diabetes Association in Broward County, “Their team’s efforts resulted in a top 10 fundraising total among South Florida companies for our research, education and advocacy initiatives. As a first time team, their passion and dedication for making a difference was inspiring! We are excited to see what’s in store for 2011!”

On January 27th, Ghen Sugimoto , InteractiveMD Vice President, and I humbly accepted a trophy at the StepOut annual awards banquet recognizing our team. There were only five trophies being awarded out of over 280 teams, so it was a special moment for us to be a part of this wonderful community of advocate organizations. We’re already looking forward to this year’s Walk, and making a much bigger impact in fighting the disease. A warm thanks again to all those who joined in this effort.
