Adults and children in Georgia are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as more than 1,000,000 suffer from this deadly disease, 350,000 of whom don't even know they have it! If present trends continue, it is estimated that one out of every three children, one in two minority children, faces a future with diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association, Atlanta/North Georgia Region office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with this disease.
We are here to help and invite you to join us. You will be helping us to confront it, fight it and stop it.
Step Out participants are committed to walk and raise money in this inspirational event not because 30 million people in the United States have diabetes, but because they walk among us in our lives and at the event. We will be walking on Turner Field!
Learn how to be healthy, active and live well with diabetes. The EXPO is free and includes health screenings, cooking demonstrations, information and resources from exhibitors, as well as leading experts talking about diabetes management and prevention.
The purpose of this award is to recognize men who have made family a priority while balancing demanding careers and community involvement. Please join us in supporting the amazing gentlemen who will be honored at this year's event!
The Tour is a ride, not a race, with routes designed for everyone from the occasional rider to the experienced cyclist. Whether you ride 2 miles or 100 miles, you will travel a route supported from start to finish with rest stops, food to fuel the journey and fans to cheer you on!
