C-PaK will connect the kids in various fun activities. We go swimming, roller skating and roller blading, play laser tag, have a gym day, go wall-climbing, skating and tobogganing, enjoy a summer picnic and whatever else might be suggested. The important thing is that, at these activities, the kids have the opportunity to witness other kids as they get their BG checked and have an opportunity to meet these other kids with Type 1 diabetes. They quickly realize by seeing for themselves they are not the only child who has to deal with this disease. In their minds, that is HUGE!!
Diabetes is a chronic disease that affects the whole family. For that reason, the WHOLE family is always welcome at C-PaK Kid's Activities.
Ideally these activities are held 3 to 4 times per year. They will be held on week-ends. An email will be sent out with specific kid's activity dates to everyone on my email list.
Activity costs are always paid by the families.
C-PaK is working! There are a number of children who have met very good friends at our activities. How great is that!!
C-PaK holds meetings as a way to connect parents. These meetings offer a time for parents to share their challenges, successes, frustrations and joys!
Ideally these meetings will be held 3 times per year on a weeknight from 7:15 - 9:15 p.m. An email will be sent out with the scheduled date and location of meeting to everyone on my email list.
As well as providing an opportunity for parents to get together to talk and learn from each other, there will be speakers scheduled from time to time addressing topics picked by you alathe parents.
Please Note: If child care is ever an issue, please don`t hesitate to bring your child to the meeting (perhaps with a few toys or electronic gadgets to help pass the time). There is no cost to attend the parent meetings.
