Diabetes Bowl-A-Thon event in the Vaughn Region. The purpose of this event is to bring together people who support those living with diabetes, and to raise funds for kids with type 1 diabetes to go to D-Camps.

Currently, over 11 million Canadians are living with diabetes or prediabetes and about 300,000 of those people are living with type 1 diabetes, the most serious form of this chronic disease. At D-Camps, kids get a break from being different. It is one of the few places where everyone just gets it, and nothing has to be explained. Campers often go home with a new level of independence in managing their diabetes and a feeling of empowerment that helps them continue the healthy practices they learned at camp.
