On June 6, 2019 I will be hosting a Lemonade Stand at Grapeview School to raise funds for D-Camps, overnight camps across Canada run by Diabetes Canada for kids with diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is a chronic disease with no cure and affects roughly 1 in 300 children in Canada. This number continues to grow every year. At D-Camps, children develop a sense of independence through active outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking, campfires and canoeing. Additionally, with the careful guidance of camp & medical staff, children learn to independently self-manage their diabetes (including: checking blood sugar levels, carb counting at meal times and administering their proper insulin dosage). These are necessary skills that will last a lifetime.
You can help us reach my fundraising goal by buying a virtual glass of lemonade (making an online donation) by visiting my online fundraising page or visiting my pop-up lemonade stand in person.
Thank you in advance for your generous support!
