Type None Exhibit
The goal is to create photo exhibits + installations across North America that will bring awareness towards Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), a commonly misunderstood disease. At the same time inspiring the millions who have T1D to stay strong and let them know they are not alone in this. More Info at www.racquelalongi.com/typenone
Join us as we create the first installation of Type None in New York City on Nov 4th weekend.
Juice Box Wall: an installation that will represent having a Low Blood Sugar as a T1D. It will stand as a backdrop for a photo opportunity as people walk by during the NYC Marathon weekend.
If you're in the New York City, please swing by to say hi and take some photos with the installation! We can't wait to see you all!
Date: Saturday Nov 2nd, 2018 | Location: TBA | Time: TBA
Why a Juice Box?
Yup, if you ever see an adult sipping on a juice box they are probably a type 1 diabetic. That is because they use the 15 fast-acting carbohydrates in this common kid’s snack to treat a “low”, or hypoglycemia, which occur on a frequent basis. Our favourite flavours are peach cocktail and fruit punch.
