About two dozen people gather at a park in Yakima today to raise awareness for diabetes.

It was put on by local patient Horacio Campos, as part of World Diabetes Day.

Campos, a type 2 diabetic, planned the walk at sarg hubbard park in order to inspire others to live a healthy lifestyle.

Ricardo Rodriguez says Campos has been an active member in the diabetic community, and today's walk brought together many people living with it.

"I can enjoy a group with people who know the symptoms about diabetics. And i think that this a really big idea from Horacio," said Rodriguez.

Campos says he plans on hosting a walk every Monday after today.
