Mississippi's Walks for Diabetes!

The DFM is the only diabetes organization in Mississippi that keeps your donations local to help your fellow Mississippians.  Your fundraising will not only help newly diagnosed children receive backpacks of information and provide a lifeline to their parents, but will also assist those with diabetes in our state get the medications and information they need in order to live well with diabetes!  Your donations will help educate teachers about how to properly care for their students with diabetes throughout the school day, advocate for diabetes legislation, and so much more.

 

  Mississippi's VIRTUAL Walk for Diabetes 2020

statewide sponsors 2020

It’s that time of year again, and planning our traditional autumn diabetes walks in the midst of this pandemic has been a challenge. After all, many of our walkers have diabetes and other chronic conditions—we don’t want to put them at risk!

With this in mind, we're going virtual! We invite you to gather your team to "Come together" for diabetes!

We’d love to be with you, but in the interest of social distancing and keeping everyone healthy we are instead asking you to:

  1. Rally a team together to walk in your community. 
  1. Pick a date anytime in October to walk.
  1. Collect and send those important donations that we need to save lives everyday, by keeping our programs and services up and running.
  1. Get out and walk (or cycle, skate, or whatever activity you love) for diabetes!
  1. Send us your photos and videos so we can post them on our event pages, website, and Facebook page.

Everything else is as it has been in the past: Raise $50 for our Walk T-shirt! Gift cards will be available for those raising $100 and up, but please don’t stop there! We are working on a special prize for the top fundraiser to collect over $2,020 this year!
