How to Help Out

Let’s find a cure! To enable this to happen there are people and teams all across the nation pushing this common goal.  We can’t do it all, but maybe if we do a little, we can help. I’ve listed some ways you can get involved.

Why Donate?

Nearly 30 million battle diabetes and every 23 seconds someone new is diagnosed. Diabetes causes more deaths a year than breast cancer and AIDS combined. Your gift today will help us get closer to curing diabetes and better treatments for those living with diabetes.

Make a Difference

 Step Out! Step out is a walk/run that takes place across the country and is the premiere walk event supporting all people living with diabetes. This is one of my favorite events  I do every year. It brings red striders (red strider: people with diabetes who do the walk) and supporters together.

I’ve listed as many events as I can on our event calendar. If I missed your location, please reach out to me and will be glad to help you find a place near you!

Step Out

Fundraiser

There’s many different types of fundraisers you can do where proceedings go towards the diabetes cause. Here are some pretty good, fun ideas.
• Throw a Tournament, softball, basketball, golf, etc.
• Sell stuff, candy, baked goods, etc.
• Give something, car wash, yard work, massages…etc.
Anything goes!

Raffles

Hold a Raffle – You can raffle off any type of prizes and proceedings will go to the diabetes cause.
You can hold a raffle where all tickets are same price to enter. You can write numbers down 1-30 and put them in a hat. What ever number they pick, is the amount of $$$ they contribute. If you pick Five you pay $5.00 for your ticket. Just make sure the prize is at least $30.00 in value if you do it this way!

Shop

Going to shop anyway? If you’re going to purchase something, might as well purchase where they donate to Diabetes Research! At Amazon Smile they donate 0.5% to your charitable organization.
