A thousand people walked to raise awareness about diabetes Sunday.

The 19th annual "Mississippi's Walk for Diabetes" brought teams of colorful walkers out for the fundraiser.

Exercise and options for healthy nutrition were available for participants. Screenings were also given to let people know their risk of developing diabetes.

Those who died from complications of the disease were also remembered.

All of the money raised will stay in the state to help the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi perform educational programs.
