Lions’ walk to benefit children with diabetes

The Lions Club will hold Strides: Lions Walk for Diabetes Awareness at Jenny Wiley State Resort Park, on April 25 beginning at 9 a.m. Proceeds will benefit Camp Hendon, a camp for youngsters with diabetes.

Camp Hendon is a weeklong residential camp for children with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. It is held at Camp Crooked Creek operated by the Boy Scouts of America. Camp Crooked Creek is located in Shepherdsville in Bullitt County, 30 minutes south of Louisville.

Campers enjoy meeting other children with diabetes and spending time outdoors while participating in fishing, riflery, hiking, arts and crafts, ropes courses, and nature. Campers are supervised 24 hours a day by doctors, nurses, dietitians, and counselors thoroughly trained in diabetes management.
