"ACT"ivism: America's Walk for Diabetes

Did you know that every 21 seconds someone is diagnosed with Diabetes?


There are two types of diabetes: type 1, which results from the body's failure to produce insulin, and type 2, which results from insulin resistance or the body's inability to produce enough insulin (can be triggered by obesity). Diabetes is the 5th leading cause of death in the United States and there is no cure.

Join the America's Walk for Diabetes to help beat diabetes! If you can't get motivated to exercise for yourself, why not do it to help someone else!
