Baton Rouge, LA - Team SU Ag Center is set to participate in the 2013 Step Out to STOP Diabetes Walk. By taking part in this event, you'll be stepping out onto the streets to help change this growing epidemic. Here are reasons you should take pride in participating in Step Out: Walk to STOP Diabetes: about one in 10 American adults now has diabetes; Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death by disease in the U.S.; one out of every three Americans born today will develop diabetes in their lifetime if present trends continue.
It's Not a Walk for Heart Disease, Stroke or Kidney Disease. And Yet It Is! Diabetes can, and does, lead to a wide range of other serious health complications.
“I welcome you to join or simply support our team and help make a difference to millions of Americans living with diabetes, as well as the other 20 million at risk for developing this life changing disease,” says Erica-Williams Mitchel, Team SU Ag Center leader. “Won’t you please join me in such an important event and help take steps towards preventing and curing this deadly disease?”
