Riverfront Park, Moncton NB
The Riverfront Park in downtown Moncton will be a rocking good time on Sunday, June 9, as we gather together again for a fun filled family day raising funds for Diabetes Research.
We will have games, face painting, popcorn, prizes and a BBQ along with live music to brighten up your day. If you haven't Walked with us before find out how easy it is to put a team together. If it has been awhile since you had a team walk, we would love to have you back! We miss you!

This year in conjunction with The Running Room we will be launching our first Run for Diabetes Research! This 5 km run will start at 1:45 pm from the Riverfront Park as well. Sign up at jdrf.ca/walk or go to the Running Room Race Site for more information.

You are not alone… Parent Support Group
When a loved one is diagnosed with diabetes, it can be a traumatic and stressful time. Fear, sadness, anger, and confusion about how to manage the disease can leave families feeling alone and overwhelmed. For more information or just someone to talk to who has walked in your shoes contact our Outreach Volunteers Gerry at email@example.com or Kelley at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Outreach Volunteers work hard to plan activities for families with loved ones with T1D, be sure to be let us know if you want to be included in these invitations. This is an excellent opportunity to reach out and talk to moms, dads and kids who know the ropes. You can also contact our office at 857-4255 for updates.
