welcome to 2015 Step Out: Lexington, KY

Welcome to Step Out in Keeneland!

Margaret is Why We Walk!

Meet Margaret Molloy, one of our 2015 Step Out Youth Ambassadors.  Margaret shares her story to inspire others, so that one day, there will be no more diabetes.

Margaret Head Shot

My name is Margaret Molloy.  I’m 15 years-old and am a freshman at Tates Creek High School where I play soccer and plan to complete the International Baccalaureate program.  I also play club soccer for the Lexington Futbol Club.  I like hanging out with my friends, traveling, and watching Netflix.  I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when I was 7 years-old and in the first grade.  It was so scary!  I was afraid of taking shots every day and was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to do things with my friends.  I remember when they told me I had to take my first shot, I locked myself in the bathroom of my hospital room.  My mom and the nurse had to call someone to unlock the door.  My first shot wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.  Now I use an insulin pump, which is a lot easier… just a shot every 3 days.  I didn’t miss a single day of school when I was diagnosed.  School days went on with help from my family, friends, teachers, and school nurse.  My mom and dad work hard to make sure I can do whatever I want to do.  We travel a lot with my soccer teams and on family vacations.  I really want to play soccer in college and I want to go to Italy one day!  I love pizza and pasta (I can’t help myself!).  The ADA has been present to help us ever since my diagnosis.  Margaret’s Mob has walked in Lexington’s Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes for 9 years and we always look forward to the day.  I hope that, one day, we find a cure!!  Until then, Diabetes won’t stop me!

We’re counting down to May 30th when we will join together to celebrate raising diabetes awareness and funds to Stop Diabetes in the Bluegrass.

Thank you for walking for Margaret and Red Striders everywhere!

We Step Out to do our part to Stop Diabetes! Participants are changing the future and making a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes.

Step Out participants are committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 26 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because they walk among us in our lives and at the event.

Once you register, you'll be given your very own web page and will have access to lots of tools to help you fundraise your Step Out Center. You'll be able to customize the page with your reason for walking, send emails to ask others to join you or donate, and even download Facebook and smart phone apps. And of course, your Step Out Specialists (ADA staff) will be here to help all along the way!
