HALE GIRLS BASKETBALL SLAM DUNKIN' DIABETES
In an effort to raise awareness about Juvenile Diabetes
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease where the pancreas stops making insulin. It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks and destroys the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas. While the cause is unknown, its onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle. There is nothing to prevent or cure Type 1 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes strikes both children and adults at any age. It comes on suddenly, causing dependence on insulin injection or insulin pump for life. While challenging, people with Type 1 diabetes can live long, healthy lives, as long as they manage their diabetes. Each year 15,000 kids are newly diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, that is 82 per day. There are 3 million children and adults with Type 1 diabetes in the US
Slam Dunk for Diabetes basketball camp is a free camp for kids ages 5-18 with Type 1 or 2 diabetes. We are the only free, not for profit, instructional day camp for kids diagnosed with diabetes. We provide a safe, structured and supportive environment for each camper with experienced coaches teaching alongside of diabetes educators. We teach how sports, illness and stress effect blood sugars and how to correct insulin intake. Our campers have fun, learn they are not alone and how they can live to their full potential.
Slam Dunk originated in Chicago, Ill in 2004 by Monica Joyce. In 2013, Slam Dunk expanded to Wisconsin, having its first camp here in West Allis. Our next one day clinic is Sunday, March 22nd from 9 to noon at Lane Middle School in West Allis. Look to our website at slamdunkkids.org for the 3 day summer camp in late July!! This camp is open to all kids throughout the state of Wisconsin!!
The Game against Brookfield Central which was scheduled for tonight at BC has been rescheduled for 1/19 (due to WA-WM School District Closing for weather).
Please check Schedule and Practice pages for other updates.
For informational purposes - the End of the Season banquet will be held Wednesday March 11th
