Ho-Chunk Gaming of Wisconsin Dells to Support American Diabetes Association with Run, Walk, ROAR Event!
All Day festival of activity to support those living with diabetes!
The American Diabetes Association-Wisconsin is pleased to share the Run, Walk, ROAR event details, hosted by Ho-Chunk Gaming of Wisconsin Dells, with those who wish to support those living with diabetes.
"A full day of fun activities is planned for families to participate in! There is a 5k walk/run, a neon paint party, other kids’ activities as well as a Poker Run hosted by Harley Davidson of Madison," said Susan Hjelsand, Director at American Diabetes Association-Wisconsin.
It’s FUN to be ACTIVE!
"Ho-Chunk is doing what we need everyone to start doing—thinking of being active as being a fun, family activity! The healthier our communities become the more successful, productive and better off all of us will be!"
Diabetes affects nearly everyone or someone they love. The toll diabetes takes on a community is impactful. Over 500,000 people in Wisconsin have diabetes, and $1 of every 5 healthcare dollars is spent on diabetes. "People living with diabetes need our support and understanding. Diabetes is a very complicated disease and we need to continue to support impactful research and programs to help people prevent a diagnosis or to help them learn to manage it well." 2
The American Diabetes Association-Wisconsin provides education, resources, advocacy efforts, and camps for children living with diabetes. Ho-Chunk Gaming of Wisconsin Dells and Harley Davidson of Madison are two businesses who have taken the Association’s mission to heart and have organized this incredible fundraising day of support.
