Events


The PADRE Foundation hosts numerous engaging activities for children and families. The purpose of these programs is to enable children to have a sense of normalcy and to enable them to be side by side with their peers, who do the same things that any child with diabetes must do (test their blood sugar, take shots, measure food, etc.). Accepting their disease and establishing a routine is mandatory to prevent the potential complications a child living with diabetes may face.
