When you join Team Diabetes, the fundraising support will help the American Diabetes Association to stand beside the 29 million people living with diabetes—today and long into the future. Their signature fundraising events — Tour de Cure, Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes — give you the opportunity to not only raise money for the Association and its important work but to also participate in a fun activity.
