National Premiere Sponsorship of the American Diabetes Association Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes
With more than 32.3 million children and adults in the United States living with diabetes, and an additional 79 million Americans at risk1, The American Diabetes Association developed Stop Diabetes® - a national call to action inspiring all Americans, not just those with diabetes, to come together in unity to eradicate the disease and its impact on society.
As the world's leading diabetes care company, Novo Nordisk is proud to support the Stop Diabetes movement as the National Premier Sponsor and Red Strider Sponsor of the American Diabetes Association's signature fundraising event, Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes.
Step Out walks take place in more than 140 cities to raise awareness about diabetes and to raise much needed funds to help change the future of this growing epidemic that is taking a physical, emotional and financial toll on our country.
Novo Nordisk has been a supporter of the Step Out event in local regions across the country for many years. Through this national sponsorship and our participation as a Nationwide Team in walks across the country, we will champion our commitment to changing diabetes and join the ADA in working to improve the lives of the millions of people who are living with the disease. We have long supported the work of the ADA and are pleased to have this opportunity to make a significant impact for the Association and for patients.
