Kids with Courage Type 1 Champions Scholarship Program

We have been inspired many times over by the courage and strength of our kids and students who must battle Type 1, every day, forever.  Our students with Type 1 are Champions as they must face, battle, manage and endure daily medical procedures and protocol.  They find the acceptance needed, get through the hard, the good, and everyday moments bravely, with grace and wisdom.  Their inner strength helps them rise above difficulties in all aspects of their lives.  Kids With Courage is pleased to support the education of our amazing students who battle Type 1 diabetes.
