Bacon Bash Texas, a Texas-based 501(c)3 organization, plans to distribute over $35,000 in camp and Dexcom Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) scholarships to children with Type 1 Diabetes. Scholarship applications are available at www.baconbashtexas.com with 2017 application deadlines set for the end of November and December 2016.
Bacon Bash hosts two scholarship opportunities for children with Type 1 Diabetes. The first supplies scholarships to send children with Type 1 to diabetes camps focused on instilling healthy habits in campers while connecting them with other children with diabetes. The second scholarship provides funding for Dexcom CGM Systems which allow remote monitoring of a Type 1 patient’s glucose levels and automatically alerts a parent when levels become dangerous.
Type 1 scholarship applications for 2017 are now available at www.baconbashtexas.com.
