We aspire to raise $60,000 to support local children from Shelburne and surrounding regions living with type 1 diabetes. Proceeds from the Flame of Hope will send youth and children to our medically supervised summer camp program D-Camps. But we cannot do this alone.

Your support plays a crucial role in enabling us to conduct vital research. The funds raised from the Cory Conacher Flame of Hope Golf Tournament serve as a driving force, accelerating our progress towards finding a cure for diabetes.

The Objective

Presently, there are 4.7 million residents of Ontario living with diabetes or prediabetes, making it a prevalent and escalating chronic condition in the region. Diabetes carries a stigma; more than one-third of individuals with type 2 diabetes opt not to disclose their condition due to discomfort. For those managing type 1 or type 2 diabetes, external perceptions often result in feelings of guilt, shame, embarrassment, or isolation.

The Impact​

Our aspiration is a world free from the repercussions of diabetes. This commitment drives our collaborative efforts to enhance the well-being of those affected. We facilitate knowledge-sharing and connections among individuals and healthcare professionals, advocate for supportive public policies, and fund research endeavors geared towards refining treatments and ultimately discovering a cure to eradicate diabetes. In the past eleven years, the Shelburne Flame of Hope Golf Tournament has generated over half a million dollars in support of Diabetes Canada. This funding aids the 12 million Canadians living with diabetes and contributes to research endeavors striving for a cure. A heartfelt appreciation extends to Sam Young, CPGA Hall of Fame Head Professional and Owner of Shelburne Golf and Country Club, along with his daughter Megan Young, WPIC Certified Wedding Planner and General Manager of Shelburne Golf and Country Club, as well as the generous sponsors and participants, who persistently champion the battle against diabetes.
