GAMMS Unlimited has been the premier sponsor of Team Phillips Family & Friends. The team is in its seventh (7) year sponsoring and participating in the Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes in Eastern North Carolina.
“Over the last six years, Maxine Phillips has raised over $35,000 for the mission of the American Diabetes Association through our walk event, Step Out to Stop Diabetes,” shared Jim Straight, Area Director of the American Diabetes Association for the Carolina’s. “This includes her annual large team made up of family and friends, donations directly from her company as well as generous donations of her time in chairing the event and being a mentor to other Team Captains.”
The team goals for 2016 are 50 walkers and $5,000. “I know we can exceed these goals but it will take all of us doing our part,” said Phillips. “The sum is always better than each part. We can save many lives and advocate for those of us who are living with diabetes but we can’t do it by ourselves!”
“Maxine has served as an inspiration for those families dealing with diabetes by sharing her family’s story, and that of her late husband, Greg, who is the inspiration for her team and the reason she initially got involved with the ADA,” said Straight. “We are very thankful to have Maxine as one of our top fundraisers and as one of our top motivators for everyone involved with walk. And now we are even more excited and thankful to have her recently agree to sit on our local leadership board. Maxine is a powerful ally in our fight to stop diabetes!”
Now is the time for you to help! Join GAMMS Unlimited and Team Phillips Family & Friends for the 2016 Step Out Walk to Stop Diabetes! The call is for more companies to become a sponsor, more volunteers to serve, and more people to create a team (whether it be at your church, school, organization, family and friend or even create virtual teams).
