CHI Roller Coaster

Last Saturday was CHI Roller Coaster Day at Luna Park and it was a blast! It was a summery gorgeous day on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. Luna Park is in Coney Island, Brooklyn right next to the beach, and is home to the historic wooden roller coaster, the Cyclone, built in 1927, as well as many other rides and smaller roller coasters for children.

CHI Roller Coaster Day was sponsored by Luna Park. They so generously donated wristbands for all who came, allowing CHI families and friends to unlimited rides at the amusement park. They also fed us and gave us a party room! CHI families and members of the CHI Sugar Soirée Junior Committee participated and CHI Volunteer Extraordinaire, Julie Sheldon, coordinated with Luna Park to make this day possible.

We all know that sometimes life with HI feels like a roller coaster, dealing with blood sugar levels that can be all over the place, as well as with the emotional strain of worrying about the effects of low blood sugar. It was truly wonderful to be at this iconic amusement park and for ROLLER COASTER to have positive connotations for the CHI Community on this glorious day! We’ll keep you posted about the possibility of this becoming an annual event.
