JIM’S TEAM 4 DIABETES FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES ITS FIRST PARTNERSHIP; TEAMS UP WITH TANDEM DIABETES CARE TO SPONSOR SUMMER CAMPS
BLAINE, MN—April 18, 2022. The Jim’s Team 4 Diabetes Foundation announced today a national partnership with Tandem Diabetes Care. Together, they will sponsor a select number of children across the country with Type 1 Diabetes that provides them with a Free Campership during the summer months.
The Foundation’s role is to take care of registration fees that covers a one (1) week overnight camp for kids in their local city or state that operates specifically for T1D youths of any age. Families are encouraged to visit the Jim’s Team website (www.JimsTeam4Diabetes.org) to complete the Campership application form for their child.
“We are so grateful to Tandem Diabetes Care for investing in our Foundation especially as a start-up non-profit organization and for their belief in our Mission,” said Jim Loria, President of the Jim’s Team 4 Diabetes Foundation. “We are equally excited for the opportunity to help enhance the quality of life for kids living with the daily challenges of Type 1 Diabetes where they are often unable to attend a camp and enjoy such a memory-making experience because the disease requires 24-hour attention.”
“It was a natural fit to support Jim’s Team 4 Diabetes given our mission to create new possibilities for people living with diabetes. We have a long-standing history of supporting the community through a variety of diabetes camps across the country and we are proud to expand these efforts with a new partner. We’re grateful for the work of the foundation allowing more children to attend camp to develop management skills and confidence, as well as experience the camaraderie and support of the diabetes community.” – Ross Sylvia, Vice President, Marketing, Tandem Diabetes Care.
