Nearly 26 million children and adults in the U.S. have diabetes and almost seven million of them don't even know they have it. Diabetes contributes to the deaths of more than 231,000 Americans each year and is also the leading cause of kidney failure, nontraumatic lower-limb amputations, and cases of blindness among adults in the Unites States. One out of three children born after the year 2000 will develop diabetes. That rate is even greater in minority children, with one out of two developing the disease.
Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is the signature fundraising walk of the American Diabetes Association. The event has been taking place for more than 20 years and has raised more than $150,000,000 to Stop Diabetes!
