Step Out is a great way to show support for the nearly 26 million children and adults in the U.S with diabetes and the 79 million more who are at risk. Every 17 seconds, someone new is diagnosed with diabetes.

This movie and television themed event will be a different type of walk beginning with entering the Land of Oz as you check in at the Step Out Walk registration.

The Los Angeles walk is designed to be a memorable experience for the whole family and the route is approximately three miles.

  1. My parents and BFF have diabetes. It is an insidious illness that can cause much damage and may lead to the loss of limbs and mobility. My mother has a permanet walking cast from the neuropathy in her foot caused by diabetes. My mother’s loss of mobility and health are heartbreaking for me. PLEASE, support this cause.
