B-SWEL will Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, Sunday Sept 16th

Members of the B-SWEL walking club stepping out in Brooklyn

The B-SWEL Team’s walking club has walked over 26,000 miles, a distance greater than the circumference of the earth, over the last year!

This Sunday, September 16th, the team and our walkers will be joining forces with the American Diabetes Association’s Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes event.  We will be meeting at the South Street Seaport at 9:15am (10am start) at Pier 16 for a 3.3 mile walk around scenic downtown Manhattan.

B-SWEL is Stepping Out because in our neighborhood, over 12% of residents report being diagnosed with diabetes and diabetes deaths in our area have increased 42%.  We are proud to do our part to Stop Diabetes. We decided to team up to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. We are committed to walk in this inspirational event and hope that some of you may join us.

Join the B-SWEL team! http://main.diabetes.org/goto/bswel
