Mississippi's Walk for Diabetes - Join us in Gulfport on March 5 and in Oxford on April 3, 2022
Walk, stroll, and roll with the DFM and help support Mississippi kids and adults living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes!
The walk theme is "Lean On Me." During the pandemic, we have all learned how important our support networks are. We all lean on others in some way: our health care providers, coworkers, friends, and family.
Support those you love with diabetes by creating teams of families, friends, classmates, sports teams, Sunday school classes, and co-workers to walk in their honor! Individual walkers are also welcome as well as Virtual walkers/teams!
If you are uninsured and need a hand with your diabetes care, our Helping Hands program may be able to assist for a month and guide you toward longer term help.
