Mississippi's Walks for Diabetes!
The DFM is the only diabetes organization in Mississippi that keeps your donations in the state to help 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
As you probably have guessed, all 2020 in-person walks have been cancelled due to governmental restrictions on crowd sizes and CDC recommendations. Because a vast majority of our walkers have diabetes, we want to keep everyone safe and healthy from COVID-19.
With this in mind, WE’RE GOING VIRTUAL! Starting October 1st through the end of the month, the entire state is invited to “Come together” for diabetes! You have the whole month to walk a course of your choosing with family, friends, or pets (just be safe)! The DFM will go live on Facebook on October 1st to launch the walk, and we hope you can join us; however, you have from October 1st through the 31st to complete your fundraising and walk on your own (or safely with others)! Make sure to tag posts on social media with #cometogetherDFM or email photos to email@example.com!
