Walk, run, ride a bike! Get involved in one of the several American Diabetes Association events where you can exercise, have fun and boost your health while you raise money for diabetes research, education and advocacy.
Train For and Enter a Marathon with Team Diabetes:
Team Diabetes is the marathon-training program for a marathon fundraising event of the American Diabetes Association (ADA). Participants solicit donations as they train to run or walk a half or full marathon. Everyone at every level of walking and running is welcome. Your local ADA chapter provides training and support.
Tour de Cure:
Tour de Cure is a series of fundraising cycling events held nationwide to benefit the ADA. It's not a race--it's a ride with routes designed for everyone from occasional riders to experienced cyclists. Participants travel a designated route supported from start to finish with rest stops, food to fuel the journey and fans to cheer them on!
Be a Red Strider and walk in a Step Out event. Red Striders are people who live with any type of diabetes who can walk as an individual or on a team with friends, family or coworkers to stop diabetes--one step at a time. The Red Strider Program showcases the courage it takes to live with this diabetes.
School Walk for Diabetes:
School Walk for Diabetes is a fundraising and educational event held in elementary and middle schools. In addition to raising funds for research, information and advocacy the event educates parents and teachers about the warning signs of diabetes in children, teaches kids the importance of exercise and healthy eating, and promotes community service and school spirit.
