School Walk for Diabetes is an educational school fundraising program that promotes healthy living, school spirit and community involvement.

School Walk for Diabetes educates students, families, staff about Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Funds raised support the mission of the American Diabetes Association to prevent and cure diabetes and improve the lives of all people living with diabetes.

Your school can earn 10% back of your total fundraising in the form of a gift certificate for PE equipment from Gopher (minimum fundraising level is required).

The School Walk program is currently available in six areas: Arizona, Austin, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Minnesota/North Dakota. Please click on "Register" to get started.

Step 1: Hold a Kickoff Event

Start your School Walk with a kick-off event where students learn about diabetes and get excited about participating in your School Walk!

Step 2: Start Fundraising and Spread Awareness

During a 2-3 week period, students ask family and friends to support them in their School Walk. The more your school fundraises, the more your school can earn in a gift certificate to purchase PE equipment from our friends at Gopher!

Step 3: School Walk

The day is here! School Walks can occur during PE class, or as an entire school assembly. Honor those who are living with diabetes and have fun!
