Today's WEGO prompt: Health Activist Choice Day 2! Write about whatever you like.
For the past few years I have raised money as part of the American Diabetes Association Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes. I have only been able to make it to one event, a small nearby walk that no longer exists. The rest of the walks I have registered for have been too far for me to travel due to family obligations. This is the case again this year. All of the walks in my state are a few hours away and conflict with obligations that are already on my schedule this far in advance. However, I still signed up to walk. Why?
I walk because I have hope. I walk because I have faith. I walk to find a cure for diabetes. Not just Type 2 diabetes, but all types: Type 1, gestational, medically induced, etc. No one should live a life with diabetes. No one deserves it!
Please help us find a cure for diabetes! You could either sponsor me, join my team, or start your own team. My goal is to have ten people on my team, raise $2,500 as a team, $1,000 of which I hope to raise myself. I know this will be a challenge as a virtual team leader, but life is full of challenges. Remember, you can (join the) walk even if you can't (go to the) walk.
I'm so glad you posted this because I have the same problem where I live. I would have to drive 3 hours to get to a walk in my state. I have given serious consideration to going anyway but your post has made me realize that I can help even if I don't walk! Thanks Kim for whopping me up the side of my head. :)ReplyDelete
