90% of diabetes (NIDDM) is preventable & more manageable with Rx Exercise!

Challenge Diabetes with appropriate and highly effective Rx Exercise. Appropriate Rx Exercise is a powerful help to many people with diabetes who want to better manage their diabetes, and improve their quality of life, by being physically active through, and well beyond, their diabetes challenges.

Come celebrate people with diabetes who say, “I’m Moving My Feet to Defeat Diabetes"

This is a remarkable occasion to inspire, and be inspired by, our family and friends who are walking or running through their diabetes challenges to optimal diabetes management and a better quality of life every day.
