WILMINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA - Even though the Longest Walk 3 - Reversing Diabetes officially ended on July 8 in Washington DC, diabetes among American Indians did not end.
Denise Hunt, Lumbee, who serves as state coordinator for the Longest Walk 3 for North Carolina, is organizing a boat charter called Dive for Diabetes scheduled for September 7th.
"Come out and enjoy an awesome dive trip to the Fossil Ledge, known for its large quantity of sharks teeth and whale bones, or be a passenger while we dive to bring awareness of the devastating effects of diabetes and how it can be reversed by changing our entire diet and lifestyle!" said Hunt. "This disease is at epidemic levels across America."
An American Indian traditional water ceremony will be held after the Dive.
The Dive involve a 44 mile round trip on the Atlantic Ocean off of Wilmington, North Carolina to Fossil Ledge and will last approximately 3 hour boat ride. The Dive for Diabetes cost $135.00 (half of the proceeds from this charter will go to The Longest Walk).
