YOM is inviting you to walk with us in the fight against diabetes. Join us Saturday September 28 at Tibbetts Park in Yonkers.
Step Out is so much more than an event. It’s an opportunity to change the future and make a positive impact in the lives of those who are affected by diabetes. Throughout the country and in Yonkers the rates of persons including young children with type 2 Diabetes is increasing.
