I Challenge Diabetes

I wanted to share some amazing experiences with diabetes that I've been having for some time.

There's an incredible group in Canada called I Challenge Diabetes.
ICD is founded by Type I Diabetic & Olympic/PanAm rower, Chris Jarvis.
Every day, Chris inspires me to, not only take better control of my diabetes, but to lead a healthier and more active lifestyle.

I Challenge Diabetes runs active events across Canada for youth and adults living with diabetes.
This summer, alone, I have gone rock climbing, taken spin classes, rowed viking boats, cycled 140kms from Toronto to Niagara-on-the-Lake and hiked the Niagara Escarpment with I Challenge Diabetes!
Through "experiential diabetes education," Chris and event leaders help participants to understand their diabetes management for the activities as well as for everyday life.

They have a bunch more events planned for the summer in western Canada and Ontario so check out the facebook and website and see if you can join in.

Most events are free or only a minimal charge!

Hope to meet some of you out there!
