Helping Children with Diabetes
Diabetes is a serious disease for a child. Children with juvenile diabetes (Type 1) have to test their blood sugars many times during the day and give themselves insulin injections before meals and sometimes at bedtime. They must learn how to adjust regular activities, that are very important in a child’s life, with their diet and insulin programs.

Governor Suzanne has asked each club in the New England District of Kiwanis, to to work with an organization in your area that helps children with Diabetes …..Sponsor a walk, help a child attend a Diabetic Camp, serve
refreshments at a walk. As a Kiwanis Club, help in any way to support juvenile diabetes.

Clubs that send a photo into the New England District website showing their participation will receive a ribbon with a Sugarbug Pin for their Banner.
