  Step Out to Fight Diabetes 2007
Enough is Enough - Cure Time Team
     On October 7, 2007 I participated in Step Out to Fight Diabetes at City Island in Harrisburg, PA.  This was my 17th year participating in the walk.  When I first participated in the walk in 1991 it was known as Walktoberfest. At some point around 1995 the name was changed to Walktoberfest - America's Walk for Diabetes.  A few years later the Walktoberfest portion was dropped and it was known as America's Walk for Diabetes.  This year it was renamed Step Out to Fight Diabetes.
     I was diagnosed with Diabetes in 1969 at the age of 18 months old.  Please visit the page on my web site called My Battle With Diabetes to read my story.  Even if you have read my story before you may want to read it again.  I have added quite a bit to the story including pictures I just recently found from the very first Harrisburg Diabetes Youth Camp in 1977 that I attended.

Fundraising Information
 Sponsor Me Online
  I provided a link so that visitors to this page could visit my personal walk page on the American Diabetes Association's web site in order to sponsor me online.  All online donations were tax deductible and provided a receipt when the donation was completed.  There was a $15.00 registration fee for the walk in 2007 for adults only.  Children were able to register for free.  
 Diabetes Walk Mall
  I provided a link so that visitors to this page could visit my fundraising mall that contained over 500 stores including the large chain stores like Target, Wal-mart, Staples, Barnes & Noble, etc.  Each store agreed to pay a certain percentage of all purchases made through the fundraising mall to their stores toward my fundraising goal.  Any purchases made after August 2007 counted toward the 2008 walk total.
 Dominos Pizza Cards
  I sold Dominos Pizza Cards for $10 each that allowed individuals to get up to 20 pizza's for free. The cards were valid from April 1, 2007 until June 30, 2008.
 The Pampered Chef® Fundraiser
  I provided a link so that visitors to this page could visit my The Pampered Chef® Fundraiser page on this web site.  This page provided all information on how to place an order online, by mail, or by fax so that the orders counted toward my fundraising goal. Order forms, online catalogs, and instructions were available on this page.
