Based in Virginia Beach, VA, Robert Anthony Nolan stands out as an inventor, innovator and pioneer in the field of aviation. Away from his professional responsibilities, Robert Nolan is an insulin-dependent diabetic who contributes to the American Diabetes Association (ADA), which will hold an event in VA in the fall.
Part of the American Diabetes Association’s national walk series, the Hampton Roads Step Out to Walk Diabetes event endeavors to benefit the nearly 875,000 residents of VA who live with diabetes. In participating in the walk, which will take place October 7 at µ , individuals will specifically assist the ADA in raising awareness of diabetes, funding life-saving research, and providing aid to those who experience discrimination because of their conditions.
Walkers at the VA event may opt for either a one-mile or 3.1-mile (5k) route, and there is no registration fee to participate. However, the ADA encourages all individuals to engage in fund-raising in order to help the organization meet the $300,000 goal it has set for the event. To facilitate the fund-raising process, the ADA provides each registrant with a variety of tools, including a customizable personal web page, and gives him or her access to the organization’s staff.
Apart from the walk itself, the Hampton Roads Step Out to Walk Diabetes event will offer live entertainment, children’s activities, a health and wellness area, and other amenities. To learn more about participating, please visit www.StepOut.Diabetes.org.
