North Carolinians are increasingly feeling the effects of diabetes as thousands of people suffer from the disease, and many others may have diabetes and not know it! It is estimated that one out of every three children born after 2000 in the United States will be directly affected by diabetes. In the Charlotte Metro area, roughly 160,000 people have diabetes.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Charlotte office is so committed to educating the public about how to stop diabetes and support those living with the disease.
We are here to help.
The goal of this program is to increase awareness regarding the seriousness of diabetes and the importance of early diagnosis and treatment within the African American community. The program includes informative church and community-based activities, such as Project POWER and Choose to Live.

The Westin Charlotte
Each year the American Diabetes Association recognizes a group of outstanding men from across the nation for their tremendous strength, commitment and love as fathers. These men not only have been successful in their chosen fields, they've carved out time to teach and nurture their children while also being good citizens and proud members of the community. Since 2001, Charlotte's 64 honored fathers have raised more than $3.3 million to help Stop Diabetes.

When you walk, you help Stop Diabetes. Walking is one of the easiest, most relaxing forms of exercise for many people, but especially for those living with diabetes. Walking helps control blood glucose levels in people with diabetes and improves overall quality of life. It is also an activity that can help prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes in people at risk.
School Walk for Diabetes is an educational school fundraising program that promotes healthy living, school spirit and community involvement. While raising money for the American Diabetes Association, students learn about diabetes and the importance of making healthy choices including eating nutritional foods and exercising every day. The money raised through School Walk for Diabetes helps to fund diabetes research, education and advocacy in support of the mission of the American Diabetes Association.
