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 and teachers about Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes. Funds raised through School Walk helps to support the research, education and advocacy programs of the American Diabetes Association, and to support our mission to prevent and cure diabetes and improve the lives of all people living with diabetes.

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!
