Last weekend, I was fortunate enough to walk in the Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes with my sisters. The three of us rarely get a chance to spend some time together, so it was wonderful not only to get to hang out, but also that we came together with hundreds of others in the fight against diabetes. 
You may recall that I posted a few months ago about living life with diabetes, so it was humbling seeing so many other people (including small children) living with the same condition and stepping out to fight it. 





The walk took place at Turner Field (the Ted), which was pretty exciting, because this season was the last season for the Braves at the Ted, as the new stadium will be opening up in Cobb County for next season. I've been to several games at the Ted, but I had never been on the field. We walked three laps around the stadium, and then got to finish out our last lap on the field, so that was definitely an exciting part of the walk!








This was the first 5k for both of my sisters, and I was so happy that we did it together! The Atlanta Step Out walk was one of the last for this year, but 2017 walks are already becoming available to register for, so you can check those out here! You can also still donate to my team via this link through December, so please feel free to donate in any amount towards the fight against diabetes.

I would definitely love to make this an annual event with my sisters, so I look forward to starting a larger team next year and raising funds for the American Diabetes Association to further awareness and research in the fight against diabetes!

What causes are near and dear to your heart? I'd love to hear about them and help to raise awareness for whatever it is you're fighting for/against!
