We hope you had a great day celebrating those who live with diabetes and honoring those we have lost. More than 750 walkers, just like you, joined the effort to support diabetes research, education, and advocacy programs. Again, thank you for walking to Stop Diabetes and for your support - you are all our heroes!

Matching Gifts: These are a great way to double (or even triple) your fundraising dollars. Encourage your donors to check and see if their company has a matching program (or use our Matching Gift Search). Check with your own employer too as some companies will match what you raise as a participant!
Thank You Gifts: If you raise $250 or more you become eligible for a Post-Event Thank You Gift such as Step Out gear, fitness equipment, electronics and more. The deadline for donations to count toward your thank you gift level will be Tuesday, November 17th. Redemption codes for Thank You Gifts will be sent via email to qualifying walkers at the end of November.
Event Photos: We have lots of great pictures from the ride, courtesy of our event photographers. Pictures will be posted to our Facebook page as we get them in, so check back often to see what's been added. Don't forget to tag yourself and your family and friends!
