SLAMDiabetes and Sam Fuld are proud to team-up again in 2015 for:
SLAMDiabetes' 2nd Annual Sam Fuld Tampa Classic
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a lethal, life-altering autoimmune disease for which there is currently no cure. 40,000 people are diagnosed with T1D each year in the US alone, many children. T1D requires dependence on injected or pumped insulin for life, 24/7/365 management and carries the constant threat of devastating complications, even death. SLAMDiabetes wiffle ball tournaments provide awareness about this oft-misunderstood disease. We raise funds for children to attend camps that provide vital T1D-management skills and help build a camper’s confidence to manage their disease on their own.
SLAMDiabetes’ 2nd Annual Sam Fuld Tampa Classic wiffle ball tournament supports SLAMT1D, Inc. camperships and camp funding for Sam Fuld’s USF Sports Diabetes Camp and the Florida Diabetes Camp Organization, Inc.
To borrow one camp’s motto, “Until there’s a cure, there’s camp.”
