Now in our fourteenth successful year, Slam Dunk for Diabetes Basketball Camps have hosted free camp for over 3,000 children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes! Every kid came away with new confidence, new skills and new friends. Just ask any grateful parent of one of our campers!

The cost of the camp is, on average, $400 per camper, offset by fundraising, grants and generous individual and corporate donors like you. Your donation ensures that we will continue to offer kids with diabetes a chance to experience this one-of-a-kind camp. We hope that you consider donating today.

Thank you for your support!
