  Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes 2008
Enough is Enough - Cure Time Team
      On October 5, 2008 the Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes took place at City Island in Harrisburg, PA. This was my 18th 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.  In 2007 it was renamed Step Out to Fight Diabetes. This year it was renamed to Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes.
     This year I was not be able to walk the full 7 miles.  I was in a serious car accident that resulted in a broken left ankle and dislocated foot.  My ankle needed to be surgically rebuilt requiring plates, pins, and screws.  On the day of the event, my ankle hurt, so I wore my brace and used my critches to participate in the walk.  I walked about 1 1/2 miles.  I walked around City Island, over the walk bridge to front street, and back.
     I was diagnosed with Diabetes in 1969 at the age of 18 months old.  I participate in this walk every year to raise money for research, education, and an eventual cure for diabetes. Please visit the page on my web site called My Battle With Diabetes to read my story.
