2017 Pittsburgh Step Out Walk To Stop Diabetes

Benefits Network Rockers

Rock to Stop Diabetes is Back!

Are you ready to ROCK? The 6th Annual Rock to Stop Diabetes is scheduled for Saturday, November 18th at Jergel's Rhythm Grille in Warrendale. Doors open at noon. Once again, Cracked Voices and The Rhythm Hawks will rock out in support of the American Diabetes Association and its Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes event. Rock to Stop Diabetes is the single largest independent fundraiser because of the generosity of people like you!

Our goal this year is to surpass last year's record total of $31,600 and as a result, achieve a six-year total of more than $150,000.

Let’s Make A Difference Together!

Our lives are touched by diabetes and chances are your life is, too. Together, we can make a difference and help those who face the daily challenges of diabetes by joining our team.  Support Rock to Stop Diabetes and/or Step Out:  Walk to Stop Diabetes because today diabetes will claim 200 lives. We walk because every 23 seconds someone new is diagnosed with this serious chronic health condition. We walk because our family and friends are among the nearly 30 million adults and children in the United States who have diabetes.

Thank you for your generous support!  YOU ROCK!
