The 34th Annual Ron Santo Walk To Cure Diabetes kicked off in six locations Sunday.

The locations were along the lakefront in Chicago, as well as Libertyville, Schaumburg, Palos Hills, Peoria and Lisle.

The Walk (www.walk.jdrf.org) goal to raise $4.5 million in support of research to find a cure for Type 1 diabetes was reached.

This year, participants walked in honor of Ron Santo, the baseball hall of famer who worked as a tireless leader to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, and for 32 years, led the Walk with a strong and emphatic voice.
