Thousands walk to fight juvenile diabetes

Posted: Updated:

Once again, hundreds of people from around the Sioux Empire laced up their walking shoes in an effort to fight juvenile diabetes.

The event brought over 3,500 walkers to the Sanford Research Center in Sioux Falls, many of them agreeing it is a great day to stay indoors to get their exercise.

KSFY met a few walkers who say they are walking to support family and friends who have the disease and they are hopeful a cure is not too far away.

Organizers say they've raised their goal of $315,000. All the money will fund new research and help those with the disease.
