Berkshire Health Systems will sponsor the Berkshires Diabetes Walk at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, Sept. 22, on the Ashuwilticook Trail.
Walkers will gather at Farnums Crossing for the walk which will run north to Route 8 and back, for a total of around three miles.
Proceeds will support the BMC Diabetes Patient Needs Fund, which helps to reduce the financial barriers that diabetes patients have and offers support for patient education and medical care, including emergency medication.
Advance registration for the Diabetes Walk is encouraged. To register and for more information on the walk, call the BHS Diabetes Education Program, (413) 395-7942. All donations made during the walk are tax-deductible.
The Berkshires Diabetes Walk is sponsored by Berkshire Health Systems with support from Roger’s Team, a community walking team that has helped to raise support for Diabetes Education.
