The annual Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, put on by the American Diabetes Association, took place on Saturday at the Miller Hill Mall.

Many of the participants either have diabetes or walk in honor of loved ones with diabetes.

Alyssa Arntsen's team is called the Arntsen Ladybugs. Her two daughters have Type 1 diabetes, so she said they all have an important reason to be at the walk. The proceeds help fund research that could lead to a cure.

"It's easy to look at the people with diabetes and not even realize they have it," she said. "But if my girls didn't have insulin I wouldn't have them anymore. So it's critical."

Arntsen said they've been dealing with diabetes for 11 years. They participate in the walk every year to help the effort to find a cure, and she said the whole family is looking forward to that day.
