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!
