Amusement parks: usually a trifecta of sugary drinks, fried food and things dipped in chocolate. Although this week, Knott's Berry Farm takes a sharp turn and transforms its grounds into a health and wellness festival, complete with a fundraising walk to aid the fight against diabetes. Starting bright and early, Step Out participants are invited to stroll through Knott's park alongside loved ones, aiding the efforts of the American Diabetes Association. Their goal is to raise $335,000, so do your part to help this most admirable cause—and maybe take a quick ride on Montezooma's Revenge.
