The American Diabetes Association and the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, were assisted by the West Palm Beach Amateur Radio Group in their “Step Out Walk For Diabetes” on Saturday morning, October 29, 2016. Assisting the members of the WPB Amateur Radio Club were volunteers from the Jupiter Lighthouse Amateur Radio Club and Palms West Amateur Radio Cub. Several hundred individuals came out for the walk which began at 8:15am and was almost four miles in length.
The “Ham Radio” volunteers assisted in communication and safety, and was stationed alongside the seven water stations that were dispersed over the route of the Walk. As expressed by Jim Nagle, KF4OD, “it was a great practice opportunity for the larger walks the Club participates in”
