The 2009 Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes was held at the Washington Nationals Park in Washington, DC on October 24th, 2009.

Team Bam Bam raised funds and walked in honor and memory of Greg "Bam Bam" Walker. Greg passed away on September 11th, 2009 due to complications from diabetes.

A true southern gentlemen, who gave so much of himself yet never asked for anything in return. Some people make the world special by being in it and he was, no doubt, one of those people. For anyone that had the privilege to meet/know Greg, his smile was infectious and his laugh is unforgettable.

With a goal of raising $2000 for this event, they shattered that amount by raising $5770. Greg was certainly proud of the hard work of all his friends.
