Texans 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.
That is why the American Diabetes Association's Houston 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.
School Walk for Diabetes
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 fund diabetes research, education and advocacy in support of the mission of the American Diabetes Association.
To get your school involved, please contact Edith Anadu at 713-977-7706 ext. 6093 or email@example.com.
