New ‘Do-It-Yourself Fundraising’

Special Events activities represent a significant segment of the Association's overall fundraising plan.

These events include Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes, The Cure Ball, and our Tour de Cure cycling event.
Individuals who are committed and willing to lend their time, talent, skills, and smiles are encouraged to volunteer on the day of an event or join our various groups to help plan, organize, set up and prepare for our various events throughout the year. We encourage community groups, clubs, organizations, employers, and family members to start a group and volunteer together. It’s a great way to improve your community and to get acquainted with others who share you passion to help us in our fight to stop diabetes.
