Partnership Between Lilly Diabetes and the American Diabetes Association to Send 89 Children to American Diabetes Association Diabetes Camps in 2012
Date:2/1/2012

INDIANAPOLIS and ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lilly Diabetes today announced its commitment to send 89 children to diabetes camp this summer through a collaboration with the American Diabetes Association (Association).

Lilly Diabetes donated 89 camp scholarships to the Association's 2012 camp scholarship fund – one scholarship for each year Lilly Diabetes has supported the needs of those living with diabetes, beginning in 1923 when Lilly introduced the world's first commercial insulin.

Diabetes summer camps give campers the opportunity to interact with others with diabetes in a positive environment. Themes of leadership, growth and learning are paired with traditional camp activities such as sports and arts and crafts.

"Diabetes summer camp is a place where children learn self-esteem, peer relationships, independence and diabetes management skills that last a lifetime," said L. Hunter Limbaugh, chair of the board, American Diabetes Association. "We are thrilled that Lilly Diabetes is investing in the futures of young people with diabetes by investing in our camp scholarship fund."

The camp scholarships, equivalent to $89,000, will give children living with diabetes from low-income families the opportunity to attend diabetes camp for approximately one week. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, and families can apply directly to the diabetes camp they want their child to attend.

"Diabetes camps provide education on diabetes management and personal development that often lead to newfound confidence for many campers.
