I Challenge Diabetes is excited to announce our upcoming Sports Camps! Participants are invited to join their peers living with T1D to take part in a basketball and sports workshop in the morning and a dance/drama workshop in the afternoon, all within ICD’s framework of optimizing blood glucose management during exercise and creating a positive, supportive environment where kids can learn and grow together!
This day long event features a Parent Workshop in the morning for parents and caregivers to come together to discuss navigating T1D and the school system. We will be exploring our positive One-Team Approach – proven to overcome barriers in schools across the province!
Sunday March 17, 2019 ICD Sports Camp will be coming to Sarnia!
Camp Overview: This camp is a multi-sport day program that will provide diabetes support, education, mentoring and normalization all integrated with awesome workouts, skill development and a whole lot of sports camp fun for all ability levels.
