Welcome to 2016 Step Out: Chicagoland, IL


We Step Out to do our part to Stop Diabetes® and take steps to improve our health! Participants are changing the future and making a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by type 1 and type 2 diabetes. You can, too! We honor our Red Striders (walkers of all ages who are living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes), and celebrate the fundraising accomplishments of all our walkers and Champions to Stop Diabetes. Register today and join us at the American Diabetes Association's Signature Fundraising Event! 

Our City Walk will be on Saturday, October 15th at a brand new location- Montrose Harbor! Moving locations just 10 minutes north gave us the ability to offer FREE parking and stunning lakefront views. Join us for a morning filled with kids activities, educational opportunities, sponsor booths and giveaways, live music- and more! This walk has a 1 or 3 mile option. 

Thank you to all 1,550 walkers who joined us at our Suburban Walk at Didier Farms on Saturday, September 24th! We truly appreciate our wonderful walkers, volunteers, committee members, and sponsors!

Registration for Step Out is free, however, Step Out participants commit to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not only because nearly 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because they more than likely know someone who is living with the everyday challenges of diabetes. Once you register, you'll be given your very own Step Out Center webpage and will have access to lots of tools to help you fundraise and promote diabetes awareness. Visit our Local FAQ's page to find out more!

New this year! Get Express Check-in at the event! On Wednesday, October 5th from 10am- 6pm, walkers will be able to turn in donations, pick up their shirts ($150+or more) and pick up their registration packets at the Chicago American Diabetes Association Office at 55 E Monroe, Suite 3420.
