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.

The School Walk program is 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!
