What do you need to do?
Join us and walk! If you choose, you can also collect donations from family and friends who might want to support your effort. All funds raised will benefit the life-saving work of the Diabetes Research Institute, the best hope for a cure.
Those who raise funds will be recognized as Diabetes Diplomats - volunteer advocates who aren't waiting for a cure... they are aiming for it!

Get fit. Get walking. And help us get one step closer to a cure!

Walk brochures will be available in your local Walgreens stores across Florida beginning in March.  Brochures can also be obtained by calling the DRI Foundation office at (800) 321-3437.
