Our Goal: | Raised:


Welcome to Step Out in Chicagoland

Last year, nearly 4,000 walkers of all ages came together to raise close to $900,000 to help Stop Diabetes! Join us this year at one of our 2 walk locations as we celebrate our Red Striders (those who are living with type 1, type 2, or gestational diabetes) and promote diabetes awareness. 

Step Out participants are committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 29 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because they walk among us in our lives and at the event. Participants are changing the future and making a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. You can too, register today!

This year, we have combined both our Step Out Buffalo Grove and Step Out Chicago walks to be listed on this one website, sure to choose your walk location when you register!   If you have registered for the September 19th Buffalo Grove Walk, your Walk Center will still have the date "September 20th" as your Walk date. This is due to a website update, and will not affect your registration.
