Join us on September 18th for our 6th annual London Flame of Hope Golf Tournament at the beautiful Echo Valley Golf Club in London, Ontario. This event is a fun day featuring 18 holes with powercarts, auction and raffle, on course activities, competitions, prizes, and giveaways. Every year the tournament sells out and brings participants from different industries and skill sets in the community together to show their support and make an impact. Now, more than ever we need support from community champions to ensure that all children wanting to attend camp have the opportunity.
Our goal is to raise $60,000 to support local children with type 1 diabetes by sending them to our Diabetes Canada’s D-Camps program. D-Camps provides children living with type 1 diabetes a medically supervised, real summer came experience and the opportunity to connect with other kids who truly understand them.
- Where: Echo Valley Golf Club
- Registration: Opens at 12 p.m.
- Tee Time: Shotgun start at 1 p.m.
- Dinner: Buffet at 6 p.m.
- Silent Auction: Closes at 7 p.m.
In Support of Diabetes Canada’s D-Camps Programs
Camp Discovery, located in London Ontario, was founded in 2004 and has since become an integral part of the lives of children and families affected by type 1 diabetes. Since its inception, Camp Discovery has been strongly supported by medical staff in southwestern Ontario, especially from the Children's Hospital at London Health Sciences Centre.
Type 1 diabetes introduces children, youth, and families to a new reality, one that can make some kids feel different from their friends. A diagnosis also brings with it a whole new set of skills to learn, including testing blood glucose (sugar) levels, priming needles for injection, and counting the daily intake of carbs. Many young people often find themselves being the only person at their school or in their community with diabetes and it can be challenging to accept a diagnosis.
Your generosity can help send a child to camp and foster an atmosphere of inclusivity where campers gain a new level of independence in managing their type 1 diabetes and feel empowered to continue using the healthy practices they learn.
