There is also a Step Out Walk day of event party to celebrate the fund-raising accomplishments of teams and individual participants, as well as an opportunity to promote awareness about diabetes, meet and mingle with others who have diabetes and learn about what the local American Diabetes Association has to offer in terms of advocacy support, educational community programs, youth programs and other events.
