On Saturday October 18, 2008, ADW Diabetes participated in the American Diabetes Association’s Fort Lauderdale Step Out! Fight Against Diabetes Walk. The event was held at the Bank Atlantic Center in Sunrise, FL. There was a large turnout of walkers and volunteers. With music, food, volunteers, and excited walkers, the walk was a success! Every dollar that is raised at an event like this makes a difference.
ADW handed out free meters to those who had diabetes or knew somebody with diabetes. Also, there were 5 lucky recipients that won either a free Splenda Cookbook by Marlene Koch or an Eat Smart Nutrition Scale.
The ADW Power Walkers team had about 20 team members walking the route around the Bank Atlantic Center. We were also able to raise nearly $2,000 for the ADA and the fight against diabetes.
