Get ready to lace up your sneakers put your best foot forward at the American Diabetes Association’s annual Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes on Saturday, October 6. In Baltimore, registration kicks off at 8 a.m. and the event starts at 9:30 a.m. at Rash Field at the Inner Harbor.
This is wonderful way to help fund research to prevent, manage and cure this disease, which affects nearly 26 million people in the United States.* It’s also a good tactic to enjoy a stroke or brisk walk with your friends, co-workers and family members.
Sinai Hospital of Baltimore has a team that will be pounding the pavement for the 5K walk, which is less than three miles. We would love to have you join our members that morning or donate to this great cause. Additionally, Sinai employees will learn 50 LiveWell points for their participation.
Sinai’s team captain shares her personal experience. “My interest in diabetes began when I was a podiatry student in Philadelphia. I saw too many people who had to have their legs amputated because of this disease so I decided that we had to do better,” explains Rosalyn Marcus, DPM, RN, CDE, coordinator of the Diabetes Resource Center at Sinai. “I started to learn as much as I could about diabetes and how to help patients try to prevent complications. Now I work with a great team to provide education and support to people with diabetes so that they can have the best quality of life.”
