It was a great privilege and honor to serve on the Executive Committee for Northern Virginia’s Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes Campaign in 2014. As leaders in our community, you know that each day, different storms can become a threat. One storm that is a growing threat is the growing number of people being diagnosed with diabetes, but one that still remains invisible to those not exposed to the suffering it can cause to our families – especially our children.


At the 2014 Northern Virginia Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, thousands of volunteers, sponsors and supporters came together for one goal – to STOP DIABETES! It was inspirational to see so many people join the movement and spread awareness.


As we head into the holiday season, let’s continue to be inspired by the power we have a a community to stop this horrible disease.
