BUENA PARK, CA- The American Diabetes Association (ADA) will host its annual ‘Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes’ on Saturday, October 5 at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park. The walk will be 2.5 miles through the scenic grounds of the theme park. Walkers will be able to get a behind the scenes look as they pass through the park grounds and Soak City. There will also be a shorter walk for participants who are not ready for the full walk. Check-in time for the event is at 6:30 a.m. and the walk will begin at 7:45 a.m. at Independence Hall.
Step Out is the signature fundraising walk of the ADA. Each year participants come together to walk and raise funds in order to aid the organization in its mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all those affected by diabetes. There is no cost to participate in this event, but participants are encouraged to raise a minimum of $125 to get the official 2013 Step Out t-shirt on the day of the event. All registered walkers will receive 50 percent off a regularly priced adult admission to Knott’s Berry Farm and free parking the day of the event. This event would not be possible without the generous support from sponsors, which include United Health Care, Knott’s Berry Farm, Hoag Mary & Dick Diabetes Center, Sweet Leaf, Walgreens, Sela, Stock Cross, Fountain Valley Regional Hospital & Medical Center, Jackson Hewitt, Orange County Breeze, and Corner Bakery.
