Parker was diagnosed with diabetes right before his 9th
birthday in 3rd grade. Shortly after, he and his family found out about Step Out: Walk to
Stop Diabetes. Parker, also known as Scoop, and his family decided on the
team name “Scoop’s Crew,” and they began building their team. They spread the
word through letters and by others sharing Parker’s story.
“We have had a team every year since then. Every year,
I want to raise more money and have more people on my team. I love
gathering my friends and family at that stage after the walk, and taking a
picture. I have an overwhelming amount of support with all of those
people behind me.” As one of the 2013 American Diabetes Association Youth
Ambassadors, Parker plans on “building the best Scoop’s Crew yet.”
Please join Parker by registering for Step Out: Walk
to Stop Diabetes, recruiting your family, friends and co-workers and coming out
to Keeneland on Saturday, June 1st!
Team Red is for Red Striders (children and adults living with type 1, type 2, or gestational diabetes), their loved ones who support them and any walkers who don't have a team but want to Stop Diabetes!
Special Thanks to Team Red Sponsor!
