It’s time for our 6th Annual Stomping Out Type 2 Diabetes event and we hope you will join us at the Tallahassee Museum on April 18th from 8:30-11:30 AM to enjoy a morning of family fun, food, and fitness! RAIN OR SHINE- THE STOMP GOES ON!

Because data indicates that more than 1/3 of our student population is at risk for developing type 2 diabetes, a disease that can often be controlled and eliminated through proper nutrition and exercise, the Foundation and our premier sponsor, Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare have created this event to bring about community awareness about risks associated with childhood obesity. It's no secret that healthier kids can achieve more academically, socially, and, therefore, have a better chance of remaining healthy for life.

The event gates open at 8:30 AM when we'll have registrations, free shirts, wellness screenings and a Zumba warm up brought to us by Premier Health and Fitness. At 9:00, we'll start our family fun STOMP through the Museum where participants can interact with animal exhibits, engage in fitness activities, take part in our fishing demonstrations, and enjoy Tropical Smoothie Cafe treats at the end of the morning. There will be some fun stage performances, wellness resource tables, and free screenings throughout the morning, so please come take advantage of the Museums' FREE admission.
Parking areas fill up fast, but there is plenty of parking along the entry way of the Museum- a good way to start off your morning of family fun!
