Today hundreds of supporters walked to help stop diabetes at the American Diabetes Association's Madison Step-Out Walk.
Fox was a proud sponsor of this year's walk. The Fox team also walked. Walkers raised more than $55,000 dollars.
The ADA said as of 2010 diabetes is the 7th leading cause of death in the U.S.
“Not a lot of people know the severity of diabetes, it's a huge epidemic and we just want to get our word out, and not only get awareness but also get people fundraising to get a cure for this,” said
Heidi Brittnacher, Event Organizer.
Nearly 29 million people live with diabetes in the U.S. In 2012, 86 million Americans age 20 and older were living with prediabetes, up from 79 million in 2010.
