The American Diabetes Association has the mission of Care, Cure, and Commitment to fight diabetes. The Louisville office provides resources, support and education to those with diabetes, and helps fund research to help cure this debilitating disease. The Eye Care Institute is committed to helping support the American Diabetes Association reach its goals as diabetes is a leading cause of blindness. Again this year, the Step Out To Fight Diabetes walk will be held at Bowman Field. The date of the event is October 18, 2008. The local fundraising goals are about $150,000.
