Oakland, CA–March 10 2014–Chimdi Chekwa, Defensive Back for the Oakland Raiders, and the Greater Bay Area Chapter of Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation have developed Camp One, a multi-sport clinic for boys and girls. The Camp offers a fun, competitive, welcoming environment to encourage greater awareness about Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) for children and youth (ages 8-14).
“Our goal is to encourage good sportsmanship, acceptability, and to promote the idea that no matter what the circumstances are in life you can achieve anything you set your mind to,” said Chewka.
Raiders teammates and several Raiderettes, along with various coaches from around the Bay Area, will join Chimdi to provide encouragement, sportsmanship and a day full of fun play-based activities. Proceeds from the clinic will benefit The Camp One Foundation. Local partners supporting the Camp One multi-sports clinic include: One World Futbol Project, whose mission is to bring the healing power of play to youth in disadvantages communities through the One World Futbol – a nearly indestructible ball that never needs a pump, never goes flat, even when punctured.
