Morris James LLP has joined the American Diabetes Association’s Stop Diabetes® movement by signing on as a “Figure Eight Barn Sponsor” for the Wilmington Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, which will take place Saturday, September 21st, at the Bellevue State Park.
Ken Dorsney, Esquire is this year’s leader for the Morris James Friends & Family Team. Morris James has supported the Wilmington Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes challenge for two consecutive years. “Everyone knows someone impacted by this illness,” Dorsney said.
The Wilmington Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes is a signature, one-day fundraising walk benefiting the American Diabetes Association. Every dollar raised through Step Out plays an important role in supporting the Association’s mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. “This is a terrific event that allows friends, families and co-workers to come together and support those living with diabetes,” Dorsney said.
Today, there are nearly 26 million Americans who have diabetes. While an estimated 18.8 million have been diagnosed, unfortunately, 7 million people are unaware that they have the disease. If current trends continue, one in three American adults will have diabetes by 2050. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness, kidney failure leading to dialysis, and non-traumatic lower limb amputation,” said Dorsney.
