Last night the Conference Committee had a meeting, and I was disappointed to hear that we only have about 55 registered walkers. WE can do better…much better!!! Every dollar YOU raise is dollar DiabetesSisters didn’t have yesterday.
My husband and I participated in the local MS walk this past Saturday morning. We have a friend that was diagnosed with MS shortly after the birth of her third son. Didn’t have to look far for inspiration as individuals battling this disease walked in the rain sandwiched between loved ones holding them up to walk on their own accord, some walked with canes, others were pushed in wheelchairs and some even decorated their scooters.
There are several “annual” walks that are well known like MS or Susan Komen for breast cancer. Let’s put DiabetesSisters’ Orange Will Walk on the map and bring more awareness to our cause. The only way to achieve this is by participating in the walk then asking your family and friends for support. What are you waiting for ….Ladies please sign-up to be an actual or virtual walker! We are worth it :o)
