Run or walk for 10 children living with Type 1 Diabetes!

Help The Diabetic Children’s Foundation reach our goal of $20,000 which would allow 10 children to stay at Camp Carowanis this summer! Carowanis is a Diabetes Summer Camp for children aged 7 to 16 in Quebec.

During their stay, this money will be used to:

  • Provide the children with 24-hour medical supervision by a multidisciplinary medical team (doctors, nurses and nutritionist) that will be present at the camp. They will manage and control the diabetes (insulin adjustments –pumps and insulin pen-, assist with the taking of blood glucose levels), and correct hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia;
  • Revise the children’s treatment plan every day;
  • Manage the children’s meals and snacks with an individual meal plan;
  • Offer various sports, activities, and new friends, also diabetics!
  • Offer parents a ‘time-out’ period.
