Video: Diabetes Awareness Fundraiser Held at Columbus Riverwalk
COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — It was a beautiful day to take a walk on Sunday and that’s what dozens of people in Columbus did for a good cause.
The Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi hosted the Walk at the Columbus Riverwalk.
In 2010, nearly 13 percent of adults in Mississippi were reported as suffering from Diabetes.
Funds raised from the walk will help to further research, programs and grants.
Walkers wore custom-made t-shirts to show support for those suffering from the disease.
Diabetes is the 6th leading cause of death in Mississippi.
