Welcome to 2017 Step Out: Boston, MA


Thank You!!!

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.

Recognition Item Deadline: You have through Tuesday, November 21 to continue fundraising for a t-shirt, sweatshirt, or other recognition item. If you reach a new fundraising level post-event, contact us to redeem your gift(s).

Matching Gifts:  This can easily double, or triple, your fundraising total! Check our matching gift search and see if you or any of your donors work for a company that matches gifts. Some companies will even match what you collect as a participant.

Event Photos and Videos:  We will have many photos to share with you. Some have already been posted on Facebook and there will be lots more coming in soon, so keep checking back and make sure to tag yourself and your fellow participants.

Event Feedback:  What did you like?  What can we improve?  We want to make Step Out the best event it can be, so please contact us with any feedback.

Committee Recruitment:  Want to help plan the 2018 event? Our Committee is always looking for new members to help with recruitment, publicity, logistics, fundraising and so much more.  Contact Rachel if you or anyone you know is interested.

On behalf of the American Diabetes Association, the Committee, and the 30.3 million people living with diabetes, thank you for bringing us closer to a life free of diabetes and all its burdens.
