Help Make a Difference for Children with Diabetes
About My Campaign
You can help a kid with type-1 diabetes feel less conspicuous when carrying around their diabetes treatment kit.
“Everyone wonders why that kid is carrying around that lunchbox looking thing or that plastic box. But no one wonders why a kid is wearing a Patagonia pack.”
— Scott Lynders, age 10; diagnosed May 2018
Please help us take a relatively small step to help kids feel more normal around their peers by helping the Robert I. Grossman, MD, and Elisabeth J. Cohen, MD, Pediatric Diabetes Center provide free Patagonia Atom sling packs to their patients.
With around 150 newly-diagnosed patients per year, our goal is to raise enough money for the hospital to buy at least 150 Patagonia sling packs. Patagonia has generously agreed a 35% discount, which translates to a price of $38.35 per pack (which means we are seeking to raise $5,753).
Take advantage of your company match program by indicating you would like to do this in the notes section or e-mailing your company's match form directly to Christie McHugh at Christie.McHugh@nyulangone.org
Everyone knows someone with diabetes.
Thank you for your contribution,
David and Michelle (Scott’s parents)
