Walk to Cure Diabetes – What to Expect
The State College Walk to Cure Diabetes is Saturday, May 30, 2015 at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park (the State College Spikes Stadium). Last year’s walk had around 350 participants, and we are hoping for even more this year! The Walk Route is approximately 1 mile out of the Spikes Stadium and around Beaver Stadium. Along with the walk itself, you can expect fun kids activities, entertainment, music, food and beverages, and the opportunity to meet other families in the State College area affected by Type 1 Diabetes.
JDRF 5K – Type 1 Trot
There is also a 5K race the morning of the Walk. If you wish to participate in both the Walk AND the 5K, you MUST register for each event separately. The registration fee for the 5K is $25.
