“After insulin, the best treatment for Type 1 diabetes is staying active.”

WHAT KEEPS T1D's OFF THEIR FEET?

It’s a reality T1D's face everyday: when we're active, the same daily insulin injections that keep us alive can lead to unpredictable, even deadly, blood sugar swings. 

Post-diagnosis, kids and adults who were active...stop.

People who weren’t active...are afraid to start.

"IF YOU CAN...I CAN."

Every time someone says “If YOU can do it, I can,”
I know exactly why I run: to show T1D’s that we CAN play outside just like everyone else, to help T1Ds get their mojo back—and get back out there.

And if we shatter stereotypes about diabetes along the way, even better!
