I’m excited to host an event in the Alabama River Region for people with type 1 diabetes and their families! This will be a simple get together with yard games on Saturday, November 16 from 9 -11 A.M. in front of Pike Road Elementary School in Pike Road, Alabama.
This event is a collaboration between Sugar Rush Survivors, the Pike Road Lions Club, and Pike Road Elementary.
Feel free to share the flyer above as a jpg image or use the link to share it as a pdf.
Our goals are to share the signs and symptoms of type 1 diabetes with the general public and to provide support for those individuals and families who have already received a T1D diagnosis.
We are stronger together!
