3 Years of THRIVING with T1D
Family & Friends,
Can you believe it - my diabetes just turned 3 years old! To celebrate, I am riding "Diana" (my bicycle) 27 miles on Oct 15th in Spin For Kids to raise money for Camp Kudzu campers at Camp Twin Lakes.
I had the honor of volunteering for a week in July as a counselor for a cabin of 16 year old girls. During just one day at camp, a camper could climb the rock wall for the first time, share a hidden talent at a talent show, stand on a paddle board, and make new friends who understand what it's like to take get blood glucose checks and need insulin every day. Camp gives kids an opportunity to build their confidence and capabilities without worrying about the extraordinary day to day challenges of living with Type 1 Diabetes.
I want to make a difference in the lives of others living with T1D. Please help me EDUCATE, EMPOWER, and INSPIRE children living with type 1 diabetes by donating. My personal fundraising goal is $4000. Any amount you give would be appreciated and 100% of the money you donate goes directly to campers.
I'm taking the challenge to ride and fundraise to give children with Type 1 Diabetes an incredible camp experience, and I hope you'll support me as I change gears to change lives!
Enjoy your many blessings,
Nikki Canady Penda
