Type 1 Activity - Toowoomba

Diabetes Queensland has provided a small grant to the Toowoomba Type 1 Diabetes Junior's support group to coordinate a day activity for type 1 families in the Toowoomba and Darling Downs region.


The event will be hosted at the Toowoomba Adrenalin Rock Climbing gym in Margaret Street Toowoomba on Sunday 23 April.


The objective is for the children to believe and see they can be healthy and achieve anything they want to do in life.  


Brady Schulz (Dietitian and Sports Physiologist) is the keynote speaker and will highlight how to manage type 1 diabetes with exercise and healthy lifestyles.


Jennifer Thomson, coordinator of the type 1 support group, said, "I believe the children will be attempting something they may not have tried before and will gain enthusiasm for physical activity after achieving a new experience". 


She also feels that "confidence to participate in sports without the fear of hypoglycaemia will be another objective for both participants and parents".


Toowoomba Type 1 Diabetes Junior's invites all families with type 1 diabetes in the region to register for this event.
