About Kyleigh Gisel
Hometown: Welland, Ontario
My Connection With Type 1 Diabetes:
My boyfriend Sam has Type 1 Diabetes.
Why I Choose To Fundraise For ICD:
I want to support ICD because I have seen the challenges and effects that diabetes has on diabetics and their families first hand. ICD creates unique opportunities for kids, teens and adults facing diabetes to come together and find effective ways to stay healthy and manage their diabetes. Although a lot of the participants are diabetics themselves it is also important for non-diabetics such as, family members or friends to join in learn about diabetes management.
About The Trip:
The Assiniboine Extreme Adventure is a week long camping experience in the mountains of Alberta where we will be hiking and exploring nature. We aim to learn new efficient ways to manage diabetes day to day while creating a positive environment and overall educating ourselves and others about diabetes.
