- Wee Challengers Series: Aurora
March 6, 2020
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
ICD is excited to present our Wee Challengers Series: Aurora
This fun family event is supported by our friends at Tandem Diabetes Care Canada!
What is the Wee Challengers Series? Our programs often have young T1Ds join us and demonstrate extreme courage. This initiative specializes the programming for this age group (generally 0-8+) and unites children and their parents to support their unique needs. Children meet and play with peers with Type 1, while parents share strategies and find support in a facilitated discussion. As with all ICD programs, diabetes management will be integrated seamlessly into the session which will add another level of safety and peer engagement. We will test our blood together and all things that build a healthy norm, allowing these youngsters the chance to see their peers in action. While they play, parents will enjoy a chance to share strategies and diabetes tips with other who really “get it.”
In partnership with Aurora parent group Insulin dosing, Carb counting SWAG Mamas/Daddys!
