We are a non-profit foundation whose purpose is to inspire, educate, and support adults, children, and those children’s parents who have been diagnosed and are living with type 1 diabetes.

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to inspire, teach, and demonstrate how to fully manage T1D, thereby reducing its long-term health risks through a highly active and athletically competitive lifestyle.  This mission will be carried out by conducting seminars and events to train people of all ages with T1D to overcome the disease’s tendency to inhibit athletic activities that ultimately exacerbate its adverse health effects.
