2015 - Step Out Walk to End Diabetes

On Saturday, October 17, MA HOBY alumni joined over 3,000 volunteers, walkers, and supporters at the Boston Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes. This event was a huge success and raised nearly $500,000 for the American Diabetes Association. The MA HOBY group was in charge of running the Champions tent, where participants who raised over $1,000 for the association could be recognized and rewarded for their contributions. The energy and positivity on the Boston Common this day was infectious; even those who were just passing through the park on their daily commute stopped to ask us what the event was about. Overall, volunteering at the Walk to Stop Diabetes was a fun and rewarding experience that definitely helped make a difference in many people’s lives.
