This summer I am a part of a team, participating in the Challenge for Hope rowing event on August 20th. This event is to raise money for those children who are unfortunately inflicted with diabetes. There are one in every 250-400 Canadian children living with type 1 diabetes. Therefore it makes it worthy to support a cause that touches so many children in Canada.

Children and youth living with diabetes face challenging and overwhelming obstacles every day. The daily lives for these children can be difficult and demanding on the children and parents alike. 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.

Daily requirements include:  

  •  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

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.

The rowing team of which I am a part, each have specific financial goals to achieve. My Goal is to collect $500.00 through your kind donations.

 

 

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