Snake'S Type 1 Diabetes Camp starts at RFW
Sea Eagles star fullback Brett Stewart has helped celebrate the 90th Birthday of Royal Far West by kick-starting the New Year with a residential camp for children with type-1 diabetes in the Northern Beaches.
The Sea Eagles Foundation and Brett, in partnership with Royal Far West, are presently running the camp to give kids an experience of a lifetime as they meet their NRL heroes.
Brett’s turnout on Day 1 (Monday) brought a great smile to all the kids’ faces and certainly left his mark on the entire group with his vibrant manner.
The fullback happily opened up to several inquisitive youngsters and their parents, leaving no detail out when explaining the management of his diabetes through his life, as well as training and game day.
Fellow Sea Eagles stars, including co-captain Jamie Lyon, Brenton Lawrence, Glenn Stewart and David Williams, will also be making an appearance before the kids end their time at the camp.
The free camp is now being held at Royal Far West, Manly, and will include education and recreation sessions for children and their parents/ guardians.
