Type 1 Sports Day Leeds
Sun 14 May 2017, 09:30 – 12:30 BST
Come along to the Leeds Type 1 Sports Educational Day at Temple Moor High School where you will find out more about how to exercise and play sport safely whilst managing type 1, the latest on type 1 diabetes research and meet other families and adults affected by type 1 diabetes.
The children can take part in the sports sessions, with their families watching – they will have time built into each session to monitor their blood sugar and the sports person will explain how they manage their diabetes within their sport. Parents can watch the session and ask questions as it is happening. The children can then learn as the session is going on what their blood sugar is doing and why.
