Register Now For Diabetes and Fitness Festival

Hundreds of walkers are expected to lace up their sneakers, pound the pavement for donations and get in stride at a local diabetes and fitness event in April.

Registration is open now to individuals and teams.

Walkers are asked to raise at least $150 but New York City participants topped that figure last year by brought in an average of $165. That could mean tens of thousands of dollars with more than 400 city residents expected to lace up for the cause this year.

Breakfast and refreshments will be served before the walk.
