This summer I am participating in the Challenge for Hope rowing event on August 20th to raise money for a cause that is very important to me.  With one in every 250-400 Canadian children living with type 1 diabetes, I am proud to support a cause that touches so many children in Canada.

Growing up is not easy.  Children and youth living with diabetes face challenging and overwhelming obstacles every day:

  •  Insulin injections four to six times a day to survive
  •  Pricking their fingers six to eight times a day to test blood sugar levels
  •  Extensive meal planning
  • Daily Exercise

Once you acquire diabetes, you have no option but to live with it, manage it and control it?24 hours a day, 365 days a year?for the rest of your life.

Every donation counts and helps the Diabetes Hope Foundation move closer to achieving its vision of providing children and adolescents with the survival tools they need to achieve success in all areas of their lives to maintain good health in the years to come.

Thank you for considering my request.  I really appreciate it!


About the Challenge

The Challenge for Hope Rowing and Viking Festival is Toronto's newest rowing event brought to the community to raise awareness and funding for Ontario children and youth living with diabetes by 4 hosting partners ? Bayside Rowing Club, Diabetes Hope Foundation, I Challenge Diabetes and Toronto Police Service. This is the event?s inaugural year and will take place on August 20th at the Bayside Rowing Club along Toronto?s waterfront.  Our community event will be a public event open to all interested and will be free to attendees. 

Proceeds from the event will support Diabetes Hope Foundation?s diabetes camp programming for children and youth living with type 1 diabetes.  With your support, Diabetes Hope Foundation will send at-risk and low-income youth with diabetes away to camp in 2012.
