You have the power to be a superhero! Join us as we WALK to raise our goal or $10,000 in the Stargate School: Walk to Stop Diabetes on April 27th to support our three students and two teachers living with type 1 diabetes!

Your donations towards our Stargate School: Walk to Stop Diabetes stays right here in Colorado to support the American Diabetes Association’s Camp Sweet Pea for kids ages 5-10 years old and Camp Colorado for kids ages 9-17 years old living with type 1 diabetes. Campers can enjoy traditional camp activities, while being surrounded by health professionals who provide continuous medical supervision. Campers learn how to manage their own diabetes-care, while interacting with counselors who may have diabetes and serve as positive role models. They meet friends who understand what it's like to be a person living with diabetes and have fun at summer camp - just like any other kid! Every dollar you donate helps to send a Colorado kid to diabetes camp!

Donate directly on our webpage:


Here’s how it works: By MONDAY, APRIL 25TH turn in your envelope to your Homeroom teacher or Advisory, totaling online contributions as well as any enclosed cash/checks (payable to American Diabetes Association). The homeroom, advisory group, or staff group with the highest fundraising will receive a LUNCH PARTY, provided by our friends at the ADA.

Then, on April 27th, be sure to join us (along with your fellow students, parents and friends) for a Pep Assembly at 12:30pm, followed by the Stargate School: Walk to Stop Diabetes. Also – the first 300 students or staff members to donate $25 or more get a T-shirt to wear on the Walk! 

For questions, please reach out to Mrs. Pecosky, Teacher Sponsor (deborah.pecosky@stargateschool.org) or Adrian Miller, Parent Champion (amillers@comcast.net). Thank you for making an impact here in our community and for supporting Camp Colorado and Camp Sweet Pea!
