WALK Cares

More than 37 million Americans live with either Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes. If you do the math, that is more than 1 in 10 Americans of all ages, all shapes, and all sizes.  Our Mothers and Fathers, Daughters and Sons, neighbors, and friends, and they are working hard to manage a disease that impacts every aspect of their lives. Their challenge can be complicated by misinformation and lack of awareness, which has led at times to misdiagnosis and failed public policies regarding the inadequate treatment, prevention, and research of diabetes.

WALK 97.5 hopes to change this by shining a spotlight on Diabetes.

Cycle for a Cure

Please join Team DRI for their annual biking event in Cedar Creek Park on September 17, 2022.  You can do any distance you would like – 25 to 50 miles or 75 miles! If you prefer riding with your team separately, you can do so by hosting your own ride on! You can ride in your neighborhood, in another park or even on your Peloton, and still help us raise awareness for everyone living with diabetes.
