There are less than two weeks to go before the Colorado Rapids teams up with Rocky Mountain Health Plans to participate in the annual American Diabetes Association's Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes, on Saturday, November 1.

Led in support by Rapids President Tim Hinchey, who has family ties to the disease, and CNIC Health Solutions - a subsidiary of Rocky Mountain Health Plans - CEO Jim Swayze, the team has set goals of 150 team members and $10,000 in fundraising. Both Tim and Jim currently sit on the ADA board.
