We Fight to End Diabetes

Nearly one in two Americans has diabetes or prediabetes. It’s a disease that affects us all—and it will take us all to stop it. The American Diabetes Association (ADA) is leading the charge to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by diabetes. You can take action and join the fight to change the curve on the diabetes epidemic through volunteering, advocating, fundraising, donating, and more. Together, we can end diabetes.



You can get involved with the ADA by participating in one or both of our annual signature fundraising events, Tour de Cure® and Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes®. These events, held in various locations nationwide, raise funds and bring awareness to make critical headway against diabetes.

Learn About Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is a way to carefully test a new drug or device in patients before it is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for public use. Clinical trials are vital to develop new treatments for diabetes and other conditions.
