Walk to Stop Diabetes this Saturday in Nashville with Visionworks 11/7 #ad

I’m partnering with Visionworks to let you know about this great upcoming opportunity.

Looking for something fun to do on Saturday? Why not go and do the Walk to Stop Diabetes in Nashville at Centennial Park? It’s a great family fun event that will have activities and allow you to get active with your family and friends. In addition to doing the walk and getting healthy they have stations set up to get you more information about caring for your eyes and diabetes with valuable coupons to Visionworks. The family friendly event will include music, food, kids’ activities, local entertainment and most importantly, the company of those who are passionate about the fight against diabetes. Register online at stepout.diabetes.org/ to help find a cure for the more than 29 million Americans living with diabetes through fundraising.

At its ten locations in the Nashville area, Visionworks maintains a large selection of eyewear to promote healthy sight such as UV-treated lenses, polycarbonate impact-resistant lenses, polarized sun lenses, flexible frames and Optomap ultra-wide digital retinal imaging system. The Optomap is able to capture more than 80% of your retina in one panoramic image, enhancing your eye doctor’s ability to detect the earliest sign of disease, like diabetes. To learn more about Visionworks, visit www.visionworks.com and use the store locator to find one of the Nashville-area locations nearest you.

Visionworks and Davis Vision believe in educating those that have diabetes or are inclined to get it. They want you to know to get your eyes screened at least once a year to help keep your eyes healhty and diabetes in check. By having this walk they hope to raise awareness and promote education. And that is nothing but a good thing! So go out and walk with your friends and family at the Stop the Diabetes Walk in Centennial Park on Saturday.

Do you or someone you know have diabetes? Have they gotten their yearly eye screening? Check out the local VisionWorks locations and encourage them to get it set up soon. Leave me a comment of who in your family or friends has dealt with diabetes and how they’re eyes are doing!

    That sounds like a great idea. Wish I lived closer so I could walk.

  2. rachellemama says:

    My dad has diabetes and gets his vision tested yearly. So far so good! I love my local visionworks, I got some awesome glasses from them a few months ago.

  3. This sounds like a great event. Diabetes is a terrible thing, and it seems like it consumes a life with checking blood sugar and worrying about what to eat. =(

  4. Catherine S says:

    This sounds like a great walk for a great cause. I am sure they will have a great turn out.

  5. Diabetes is common in both mine and my husband’s family. Nashville is not too far away from me!

  6. kristi says:

    Sounds like a great cause to walk for. The 9 year old son of a friend of mine just got diagnosed with Diabetes. He has to wear a pump of some kind all the time to monitor his sugar levels.

  7. Liz Mays says:

    This sounds like a great event to check out with the family. A lot of my family is at risk of diabetes so eye screenings are super important.

  8. What a wonderful fundraiser to do. Diabetes needs a cure for both young and adult people.

  9. Estelle S. Erasmus (@EstelleSErasmus) says:

    My friend’s son has diabetes and another friend of mine was diagnosed as well. The walk is a great and popular fundraising and community-building concept.

  10. Great way to raise awareness around this important health issue. I hope there is a good turn out and people showing their support.

  11. Chasing Joy says:

    My dad had diabetes and I recently found out I am pre-diabetic. It is not an easy disease.

  12. Unfortunately I do know someone who has diabetes and I applaud Visionworks for putting on a walk to help find a cure. Thanks for sharing!

  13. Lisa Bristol says:

    My Dad is Diabetic and his eyes are okay. He had Lasik surgery to correct his vision and has not had any issues. He gets his eyes checked every year. This is a great walk to be involved with.

  14. Ann Bacciaglia says:

    This sounds like a great walk to be involved with. I will have to see if there will be one in my area soon.

  15. What a cool idea! I am too far away but sounds great for those in the area!

  16. I had no idea there was a connection. I need to check in with my relatives with diabetes to make sure they are getting annual checks.

  17. My MIL has it. It’s not fun at all and requires a lot of care.

    Giving back is always a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon

    I have a young cousin that is diabetic and it is heart breaking. So glad there are walks like this to help raise money to educate and help diabetics.
