ONTARIO, OH - The 6th Annual D-Feet Diabetes 5K was held on Sunday, and the great weather brought a great crowd. 

The event was held at Ontario High School, and was sponsored in part by offices from Ohio Health. 

Dr. Cynthia Dorsey, an endocrinologist at Ohio Health, was there to help support her patients and other community members running. 

"We need to raise awareness for people that are living everyday with diabetes in our community", Dorsey says. 

One runner, Matt Conrad, had 4 generations of his family joining him for the run, including his 12-year-old daughter Katie. 

Runners who have diabetes wore blue bandanas so others running would know who they were running for. 

All of the proceeds from the run will go back into serving the diabetic community of Ontario. 

A patient of Dorsey's, Hillary Diehl, told us it was important for her to participate in the event because it shows other people with diabetes that it doesn't define who they are.
