On Saturday, October 23, the Boston Chapter of the WLN participated in the 2010 American Diabetes Association Step Out Walk.  It was a beautiful day, high energy with thousands of people, adults, kids and even pets, all joined to help stop diabetes.

We built a team and created ways to raise money and to participate.  We got local vendors, media partners and clients to donate items for a raffle and held two raffles leading up to the walk.  FYI, raffles are a money maker and give folks a way to participate if they can’t walk.  We also held a T-shirt design contest among the agencies and the winning design would represent our team.  It is amazing what a strong, smart group of women can accomplish given the opportunity. We exceeded our goal and the ADA exceeded theirs.  All and all it was a lot of fun!  A great way to end a Saturday!
