Welcome to Step Out in Philadelphia!
The Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes here in Philadelphia has happened and what a day it was! Walkers committed to stopping diabetes fought torrential rains and winds to make a difference in the diabetes community and Step Out. Walkers, Red Striders, Champions and Sponsors came out and experienced Step Out Philly’s Health & Wellness fair, celebrity guest speakers including Patti LaBelle, Charlie Kimball, S. Epatha Merkerson, and Dr. Andy Baldwin, and concluded the walk with the Freedom from Diabetes concert featuring Audra McLaughlin, and Grace Little, along with other local talent.
Step Out Philly continues to make history by being one of the most fundraised walks for diabetes and the ADA. Keep up the great work as online fundraising will continue through the Step Out Center throughout American Diabetes Month until November 30th, 2014. Through efforts like those from our Step Out participants, Step Out Philly continues to positively impact the lives of the 29 million people in the United States who have diabetes.
Thank you to all of our national and local sponsors in the Philadelphia region for the Step Out walk including our presenting sponsor, Merck; our National Premier Sponsor, Novo Nordisk; and our concert sponsor, AstraZeneca.
