Why We Walk!

Each participant’s motivation to walk is a story they are quick to share. It may be for themself, a loved one or a friend or it may be because someone they care about or their employer asked them to participate. Each year, more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults – approximately 80 people per day – are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) in the United States. We walk for them, and as many as 3 million Americans that have T1D. Who’s your #1?
