Diabetes Walk Held In Tyler

It was a step in the right direction for a group hoping to find a cure for Diabetes.

Thousands of people showed up at Bergfeld Park in Tyler Saturday for the annual "Walk For Diabetes."

It's the 9th year the event has been held in Tyler.

Diabetes affects 1 in every 17 Americans. Last year Diabetes walks across the U.S. raised over 20 million dollars for research.
