Mini-Run Outside Hard Rock to Raise Awareness about Diabetes

Last Edited:
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -

November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and on Thursday a few folks laced up their sneakers to help raise that awareness.

On the afternoon of Thursday, November 8th, alumni with the Diabetes Training Camp laced up their sneakers for a quick little run in front of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino as a way to kick off Thursday night's Come Experience the Magic Benefit.

The benefit is to show those living with diabetes that their disease does not define them.

Officials say for those living with diabetes, staying active can be challenging, but they hope the run will show them that anything is possible.

"It takes a lot of work to do this, it's not just: 'I'm going to get out and take a walk or a run.' It's mental, it's physical," said Isabel Allen, a board member of the DTC Foundation.
