Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes

University of Texas Arlington SAL members volunteered with Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes. This event raised funds for research with the American Diabetes Association. SAL worked with ADA corporate staff and was a part of the medical support team ready to assist diabetic participants in need of medical assistance. They also passed out water to those walking.

Chapter President Dwane Tomlin said he wanted the chapter to participate in this event due to a family history of diabetes. “My favorite part in this event was watching the participants as they walked by, talking with them, and making sure they were in good health. I also enjoyed spending time with the corporate staff talking about what we can do to make the event and any other future events better next time around,” he said.
