Walk to cure diabetes

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- Snow and wind outside, but calm and warm inside for walkers raising money to fight juvenile diabetes.

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation held its annual walk to cure diabetes Saturday morning at College Square Mall in Cedar Falls.  The walk will raise money for research.

The walk also kicks off the annual health and wellness event at the mall with booths featuring demonstrations about cutting-edge technology and helpful practices in the health field.

"People who want to have their blood pressure checked or want to talk to certain professionals.  We hold a lot of those vendors here so there's an opportunity to have one on one contact with them," said marketing director Angela Dark.

This is the sixth year for the health and wellness event.  It's sponsored by the Courier newspaper.
