The American Diabetes Association recognizes Shleppers Moving and Storage for support of 2009 NYC Step Out to Fight Diabetes Walk.
With over 23.6 Americans suffering from diabetes nationwide – and 1.2 million in New York City alone, The American Diabetes Association is on the front lines in the fight against diabetes every day. Helping them in the fight is Shleppers Moving & Storage, New York’s leading mover, which provided assistance this Fall in their 2009 Step Out to Fight Diabetes Walk. For this support, The American Diabetes Association recently honored Shleppers with a special commendation. In addition, Shleppers renewed its commitment to supporting the organization again for its 2010 NYC Step Out To Fight Diabetes Walk, which will take place on Sunday, October 24, 2010, at the South Street Seaport.
“With one out of three children in the United States currently facing a future with diabetes, we at Shleppers are committed to doing our part to help The American Diabetes Association get the word out,” comments Shleppers President Jason Friedland. “We’re privileged to have been honored by the ADA, and their NYC Step Out to Fight Diabetes Walk event provides us with the perfect opportunity to support them with trucks, manpower, and logistical support.”
For the 2009 NYC Step Out to Fight Diabetes Walk, Shleppers donated moving and storage services, as well as manpower at the event – support the company has also once again pledged for the upcoming 2010 event. Shleppers donated moving and storage services for the Walk, as well as the trucking of all materials necessary for the staging of the event. The American Diabetes Association thanked Shleppers for its quick, courteous, and reliable crew, and reported that the support provided invaluable help to the organization in meeting its goal of $500,000 for funding programs to educate New Yorkers on the risk of diabetes, as well as funding research and advocating for those living with the disease. The event was held at the South Street Seaport on October 25th, and proved to be an overwhelming success, with over 2500 walkers joining the march against diabetes across the Brooklyn Bridge.
“Diabetes is a serious condition affecting millions,” adds Friedland. “But as long as The American Diabetes Association continues the battle, there is hope, and Shleppers will be there to help. Our goal is that through our continued support of their amazing organization, we can help to make a real difference in the lives of those who suffer from diabetes.”
