Honoring Brenda Allen through the Step Out Walk to Fight Diabetes

This year's Step Out Walk to Fight Diabetes is in memory of Brenda Allen, who passed away in November 2007 from diabetes-related complications at the age of 55. A life-long resident of the Greater Springfield area, she had a long and successful career as an educator and librarian despite battling diabetes from childhood. Her passion was showing children the wonders of books and reading. For over two decades, her father, Elliot Allen, was a passionate fundraiser to fight diabetes. Sadly, he too passed away earlier this year. The Allen family is joining with the American Diabetes Association this year to make the Springfield walk the most successful ever. Join us, by signing up to walk or by making a donation. For more information about the walk this year, contact the ADA or see the Allen family's Step Out home page at: main.diabetes.org/site/TR?pg=team&fr_id=5293&team_id=296138, or call 978-644-8234. Thank you, and we hope to see you on Sept. 28.
