The Central Iowa Chapter of the American Diabetes Association asked Daniel (and me) to join in their Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes this past Sunday morning (Sept. 18).
For Daniel this is a perfect charity to support, because he had Type 2 diabetes prior to the being on “The Biggest Loser.” Happily, he no longer has any symptoms from this horrible disease whatsoever. I was there to support Daniel and the many Iowans and Americans who suffer with this disease. We hopefully were able to bring awareness to all the small things you can do for prevention! Like walking 90 minutes a week. Yep, it’s that simple!
The walk was a 5k at the Raccoon River Park in West Des Moines! It was a misty, dreary morning, so the turn out was lower than we expected. The great part is many people already had donated who did not walk and those who did drag themselves out on a yucky morning were there to show our support and raise funds! We are excited to be involved with this organization and look forward to walking and raising even more money next year! Thanks to everyone who came out and hope to see more of you next year!
