Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes

Last Saturday, Gas South employees came out in full force to support the American Diabetes Association in the Stop Diabetes Walk! We gathered early in the morning at the Historic Grant Park for a fun and upbeat 5k. Gas South was proud to support this event to help find a cure for the deadly disease that affects 26 million people in the United States alone. Diabetes affects our coworkers, neighbors, friends and families and it’s important to do what we can to support the American Diabetes Association.

Our employees got together for the walk and proudly wore our Gas South Cares T-shirts. We raised a total of $5,000, mostly from our own employee donations. What a great day! We are already excited to step out again next year.
