|Team captain kickoff for "Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes" is Sept. 1|
Step Out to Fight Diabetes, formerly America's Walk for Diabetes, is about changing the face of diabetes in our country by raising funds to help find a cure and by walking a few miles to bring a greater awareness to this devastating disease.
Gather your friends and family to walk and raise funds for Step Out to Fight Diabetes in your city. Together, we can crush this epidemic. Tens of thousands of people in North Dakota and Minnesota have diabetes, and the numbers continue to grow.
This year’s team captain kickoff is set for Sept. 1 at the Empire Arts Center in downtown Grand Forks. The Grand Forks Step Out event is at the Alerus Center on Saturday, Oct. 24. There will also be a Step Out event in Fargo on Oct. 17 for anyone who wishes to participate.
