Champlified Health and Wellness Solutions, the American Diabetes Association® and Baxter International Foundation have partnered together to introduce the Know Diabetes? No Diabetes. (KDND) campaign for greater Chicago residents. The organization is hosting their inaugural 5k walk/run on Saturday, August 19, 2023 at Carver Park 939 133rd Street, Chicago, IL 60837. Registration begins at 7 a.m. with the race starting at 8 a.m. The 5k will honor Altgeld Gardens pioneer Hazel Jonhson affectionately known as the “Mother of Environment Justice”. This event is free and open to the public.

Diabetes disportionately affects black and brown communities, especially in areas where healthy foods are sparse.  If communities do not have healthy food readily available and do not have the means to travel to get it, then communities suffer and can die. KDND is a free program designed for communities that do not have access to healthy foods. KDND will be hosting events throughout the year in communities across greater Chicago. Schedules of events and registrations are available by visiting the website:
