Webster Insurance and its employees have organized its 2nd Diabetes Walk.
They started this event last year after starting a workplace wellness program. The employees then chose to do a community project and that’s what led to the Diabetes Walk.
Participants are encouraged to walk as many laps as they can, visit vendors focused on health and wellness, and raise money for the American Diabetes Association.
“We have some that is pre-registered. You can come out anytime during the walk from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can register then. If you would like to bring a donation, some of our walkers are getting sponsors for how long they walk,” said Joyce Hickman, organizer and employee with Webster Insurance.
Last year, the walk raised almost $2,000 and this year they hope to raise $3,000 for the American Diabetes Association.
