The American Diabetes Association is hosting their annual Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes on Saturday, March 29th.  Stacy Colich, of the ADA, joined us on Tuesday morning.

Stacy tells us that this is a nationwide event, but the Duluth area walk will be held indoors at the Miller Hill Mall. Registration starts at 7:00 a.m., the walk itself begins at 8:00 a.m., and goes until 10:00 a.m., at which time the mall opens.

"Participants can walk at their leisure," Stacy says. There is no requirement on how far you have to walk, you can make as many or as few laps around the mall as you'd like!

The goal is to raise money for diabetes research. You can register to help raise funds online at diabetes.org. And that's also where you can find more info.  You can also call Jacqueline Reding at 1-888-DIABETES x6592.

Remember, the walk starts at 8:00 a.m. at the Miller Hill Mall on Saturday, March 29th.
