Diabetes fundraiser set Sunday

CHAMPAIGN — There's still time to sign up to take part in the American Diabetes Association's fundraiser — Champaign County Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes — being held Sunday, event coordinator Wendy Wallace says.

The walk will take place at Hessel Park in Champaign, with registration beginning at 9 a.m., and the walk will begin at 10 a.m.

Walkers will take two laps around the park but can walk as much or as little as they want, Wallace said.

Participants raise money for diabetes research, programming and support, and help raise awareness for diabetes and its complications, Wallace said.

Registration can also be done online at http://www.diabetes.org/stepoutchampaign.
