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
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.
