Teams of socially-conscious San Antonio residents will join together at Palo Alto College this coming Saturday to help the American Diabetes Association stop the rise in diabetes in South Texas at the 25th annual Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes. In addition to the 5k walk that gave the event its name, the Step Out event has evolved into a full-scale festival, with photo booths, health screenings, a silent auction and live entertainment including the UTSA Rising Stars and the Spurs Coyote.
