Forty-five Lions from 7 Lions Clubs and 17 Leos from Century High School participated in the Diabetes Awareness Walk on Sunday, October 22, at Krimgold Park in Woodbine.

The event raised $1,850 for the American Diabetes Association. November is National Diabetes Month, a time when communities across the country seek to bring attention to diabetes. This year’s focus is on taking action to prevent health problems associated with diabetes. Because diabetes can cause vision loss and blindness, the Lions of the world have adopted diabetes as a global cause.

Pictured are Lions from the South Carroll, Taylorsville-Winfield, Freedom District, Libertytown-Unionville, Roaring Run, Terra Rubra, Westminster, and Emmitsburg Lions Clubs, and Leos from the Century High School Leo Club. Among the Lions present were Lion Tom Harney and Lion Diane Walbrecker, Diabetes Awareness and Action Co-Chairs for District 22W (the five most-western counties of Maryland).
