AMHERST, Mass. - The Student-Athlete Advisory Committee is organizing a group of student-athlete volunteers to attend this Sunday's American Diabetes Association Step Out Walk. The walk will be held in Look Park in Northampton from 8:30 a.m. to noon. Among the Minutemen and Minutewomen in attendance will be Derek Kellogg and the UMass men's basketball team.

The American Diabetes Association Step Out Walk is a walk to raise money to help those living with diabetes. The Step Out Walk all started in Western Massachusetts behind the promotion and dedication of David Allen. Allen, a resident of Longmeadow, spent much of his life promoting this walk after losing his daughter and father to diabetes. In 2008, Allen, the captain of "Elliot's Team" raised over $54,000. Ever since, the ADA has brought the walk back to Western Mass.
