School Walk for Diabetes is an educational school fundraising program that promotes healthy living, school spirit and community involvement.
School Walk for Diabetes educates students, families, staff and teachers about Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Funds raised through School Walk helps to support the research, education and advocacy programs of the American Diabetes Association, and to support our mission to prevent and cure diabetes and improve the lives of all people living with diabetes. The need for diabetes education is more important than ever as there are 29.1 million Americans with diabetes and 86 million have prediabetes.
Not only do students, staff and the community learn about diabetes prevention and management but your school also has the opportunity to earn Gopher gift cards for PE equipment!
