Join people from all walks of life at the West Valley Step Out to Fight Diabetes: Lighting the Way to a Cure on Saturday, September 27 at Midwestern University (MWU). This annual twilight event is hosted by MWU in partnership with the American Diabetes Association, with proceeds supporting diabetes research, education, and advocacy. Last year's West Valley event at MWU raised $103,000 and attracted 1,200 participants, making it the largest diabetes walk in the Valley.

Registration begins at 4:30 PM, with a start time of 6:00 PM. Walkers may choose from one- or 2 1/2 mile loops through the friendly and picturesque MWU Campus in north Glendale, located at 19555 North 59th Avenue, just south of the Loop 101. A finish line celebration will feature food, entertainment, and family fun.
