ADA StepOut Walk to Stop Diabetes - volunteers needed

The 2015 ADA StepOut Walk to Stop Diabetes will be held on Saturday , May 30, 2015.  I am recruiting medical volunteers to help at the Rest Stops along the route.  This year the Walk will start 1 hour later at 10am with registration from 8:30-9:30 am.  The route has been extended to offer a 5K option so there will be 5 rest stops to staff instead of 4 as in previous years.  The walkers should be finished by 11:30 at the latest.


If you are interested in volunteering, please send me an email at dee.deakins@uky.edu.
