I am walking and raising funds for the American Diabetes Associationís signature fundraising walk, Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes. Every step I take and every dollar I raise will make a difference in the lives of 23.6 million Americans living with diabetes. By making a donation on my behalf, you will be helping the Association provide community-based education programs, protect the rights of people with diabetes and fund critical research for a cure.

No matter how small or large, your generous donation will help us stop diabetes.

Since I have found out about the American Diabetes Associations charity events, I have tried to participate in as many as I can. With diabetes in the family (my mom, dad and I all have type 2 diabetes, and both of my grandmothers had diabetes) these events mean more to me then they would if diabetes wasn't in the family like it is. Plus I have met some great people during the past Tour de Cure.

I only have a few days left before the event and would appreciate any help.
