Upcoming Events

We are hosting an outdoor rock climbing event in Exeter, RI on October 22. This event is free for kids and teens with type 1 diabetes and their siblings. We will supply all of the gear (shoes, harnesses, and helmets) and volunteers to help everyone climb safely. This is not a drop off event. A parent or guardian will need to accompany participants. The climbing area is about 0.7 miles from the parking lot. The hike in is mostly level ground on a well established trail, with a few rocky areas and a small hill at the end. Space is limited, and registration is required. Directions will be provided after registration is complete. When registering, please indicate whether you prefer the morning (10 am-12:30 pm) or afternoon (1 pm-3:30 pm) session. Our goal is for younger kids (10 and under) to climb in the morning, with older kids climbing in the afternoon. However, we realize that this might not fit all schedules and are flexible with the age suggestions. This is a great chance to climb and connect with others affected by t1d! Please email us at rocktype1diabetes@gmail.com with questions.
