Team Up To Tackle Diabetes! 

Seven Walks, One Mission

Gulfport, Jackson, Hattiesburg, McComb, Meridian, Columbus, Oxford

373,000 men, women and children in Mississippi are estimated to have diabetes.  The Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi will host seven walks in the fall all around the state of Mississippi! Money raised from these walks helps to fund what we do everyday- school educational   programs, We Care 2 backpacks, grants for Diabetes Alert Dogs, and donations of emergency medical supplies are all made possible through our favorite fundraiser. While most may refer to the fall as football season, we like to think of it as Walk season! 

This year's theme is "Team up to Tackle Diabetes".  Wear your favorite sports team's colors or jersey! Design a team T shirt based on our theme and enter it in our T-shirt contest!

Come and be a part of the fun while helping those with diabetes! We would love to have you, your family members, peers, coworkers, and neighbors all join in our walk against diabetes!    Online Walk Registration,
