Help the 29 million Americans (400,000 in Western PA) living with diabetes by raising critically needed funds for research, education and advocacy, while staying fit and accomplishing the goal of a lifetime!
We lead the fight against the deadly consequences of diabetes and fight for those affected by diabetes. We do so by funding research to prevent, cure and manage diabetes, delivering services to hundreds of communities, providing objective and credible information, and by giving voice to those denied their rights because of diabetes. The American Diabetes Association is the only organization offering support and research to all types of diabetes: type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes.
Did you know?:
- Every 17 seconds someone is diagnosed with diabetes
- If current trends continue, one in three American adults will have diabetes by 2050
- Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure, non traumatic lower-limb amputations, and blindness among adults in the United States
- Diabetes kills more people annually than breast cancer and AIDS combined
