Thank you so much for your tremendous support of the Boston Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes! Your passion, commitment and energy made for an amazing day - we couldn't have done it without you!
Please join us in thanking our local sponsors and 300+ volunteers whose generosity also played a huge role in this year's success.
More than 1,500 participants enjoyed a gorgeous day at Boston Common and with your help, nearly $300,000 has been raised to support the mission of the American Diabetes Association.
While the event has ended, we are still charging forward with our fundraising efforts, so here are some important reminders:
Post-Event Fundraising: Your Step Out Center will remain open, and cash/check donations can be sent to our local office at the address below. Please include a note with your name so we can credit the gift to you.
