What Is Your Greatest Accomplishment Or Proudest Moment?

I went on my first trip with ICD back in 2015. I went in to it feeling unsure of myself, my ability to manage my diabetes, and having never been on an adventure in the backcountry before. I was so incredibly proud of myself when I completed the trip.

 
Do You Have A Connection With Type 1 Diabetes? (

I have type one diabetes and so do many people who I love. I was diagnosed at the age of 13 and had a very difficult time coming to terms with my diabetes. I was sad and angry for a very long time and the diagnosis really shook my confidence. However, with support from ICD, the T1D community, family, and friends, I am feeling strong. I would be lying if I said that diabetes is not a challenge everyday but thanks to Chris Jarvis and ICD, it is a challenge that I am confident I can handle.

 

Why Did You Choose to Raise Funds for ICD?

I chose to fundraise for ICD because of the meaningful support and connections it has provided me and so many other people with type one diabetes. ICD has the amazing ability to recognize people's strength and help them see it themselves.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for any contribution, big or small. Your support towards my fundraising campaign means the world to me, the ICD team, and the the many people who benefit from ICD programs!
