People in Green Bay today are taking diabetes in stride, red stride in this case. The city is hosting the first of the Step Out Walk to Fight Diabetes walks in Wisconsin this season. Event spokesperson Christine Schaeberle says the money raised helps fund research to prevent, cure and manage the disease and provide services to hundreds of communities.
Schaeberle says look around at the event and you’ll Red Striders, walkers wearing red hats to signify they are living with the disease. There is also a certain place for Red Striders to gather and meet other diabetics.
Those interested can assemble a team or walk individually. Upcoming walks will include Janesville, Madison and Racine.
