Our Goal: | Raised:
As your Seattle Walk Manager I have lived with Type 1 Diabetes since I was 5 years old (30 years). I have had plenty of ups and downs like most Diabetics. I have asked myself (why me?) and (I wish I never had this disease) a number of times over the years. But one thing I will never let this disease do is hold me back from life’s experiences and enjoying every day to the fullest.
I took this job over a year ago to make a change in people’s lives. I wanted to be a part of the mission to Stop Diabetes once and for all someday. My goal for this event is not only to put on a great event for everyone to come out and enjoy, but to raise the funds needed to help the research get further along to end this disease. I truly believe that someday my 4 year old son and 11 month old daughter will never have to worry about taking their blood sugars or changing their insulin like I have had to for most of my life.
I want each and every one of you to truly think about why you Step Out and Walk with us. There are 29 million people in the United States that have Diabetes right now. I guarantee some of you like myself are one of those 29 million people or you have come into contact with a few of them in your lifetime. So Step Out to do our part to Stop Diabetes and take steps to improve our health!
We have a $280,000 fundraising goal this year and if you break it down to 2,000 walkers fundraising $1,400 total (some less, some more) we can hit our goal this year! It all starts with you though. Register as a team captain, make a personal donation, sign 3-5 people up on your team and have them make a personal donation, then just reach out to people over the next few months.
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. Make your page personal. Tell your story as to why you choose to Step Out with us. Customize your page any way you would like.
Please contact me with any questions moving forward and I want you to check back often for updates on the Step Out Walk! Thank you so much for all your help in making this years Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes our best one yet!!
