Local FAQ

How long is the walk?
5k.  We'll share more details about the route as the event gets closer. 

Where can I mail cash/check donations?
You can mail any offline donation to our local office at any time.  Please include a note with the name of the walker who should be credited with the donation so we can process it correctly.

How do I get matching gifts from my employer?
Matching gifts can help double and sometimes triple your contribution. Please check with your employer to find out if matching gifts are available or visit our matching gifts search page.

Who do I make checks out to?
Please make checks payable to the American Diabetes Association. Donors can give online by credit card through your personal page or team page.

Can I turn in donations the day of the event?
Absolutely! Just come to the registration/check-in tent upon arrival. To minimize delays we suggest counting all money and placing it in the participant collection envelope, if you do not have a collection envelope we would be happy to mail you one or you can pick one up on the day of the event.

Can I walk and volunteer?
Yes, you can absolutely help volunteer and participate as a walker. Contact Alex Dystant at for more information. 

How many people form a team?

Typically a team has five or more individuals. There is no limit as to how large or small a team can be. If you have a large team, you can assign someone to help you manage it as a co-team captain.

Should everyone walking register?
Yes, everyone participating in Step Out Walk should register and fill out a waiver form. Children must register as well.

What if it rains?
We walk rain or shine! Please bring the appropriate gear. In the event of extreme weather (lightening, tornado, etc.) we will make a formal announcement by email, phone, on Facebook and on our website as to any changes in the event.

Can I bring a stroller?
Yes! This is a family-friendly event and children of all ages are welcome.

What is a Red Strider?
If you are living with type 1, type 2 or gestational diabetes, then you can be a Red Strider. You will be treated as a VIP of the Step Out Walk and will have the opportunity to meet others who are also living with diabetes. Make sure to select the "Red Strider" option when you register to receive special recognition and rewards.

What is a Champion?
When you raise $1,000 individually you become a Champion to Stop Diabetes. You will receive special recognition at the walk.

Is there parking available? We strongly recommend public transportation if possible (see below).  If not, there are a few parking garages (including the Ronald Reagan Building Parking- 1300 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20004) and limited street parking in the area.  We also recommend using the app SpotHero, which will donate 20% of proceeds from parking back to the event. Learn more about SpotHero and reserve your space now.

What's the closest metro station?
The closest Metro station is Smithsonian. Walking directions from this Metro stop can be found here.
