Chippewa Cree Tribe stages annual diabetes walk
The Chippewa Cree Tribe of Montana kicks off its fourth annual diabetes walk today.

Tribal members, leaders and students will walk 32 miles around the Rocky Boy Reservation to promote diabetes awareness and prevention. The walk ends tomorrow.

The tribe started its diabetes prevention program five years ago. Of the 60 people who are participating, only two have been diagnosed with diabetes.

The tribe funded the program with a grant from the Special Diabetes Program for Indians, a program created by Congress.
