WHAT WE CARE ABOUT

We bring like-minded individuals with Type 1 diabetes & their support networks together to hike, bike, paddle, camp, or just have a good time.

By creating communities that motivate and inspire individuals to take charge of their health today, we are helping to improve the quality of life for people with diabetes now and tomorrow.

It’s pretty amazing that connecting with a group of Type 1's can make you feel so proud of your diagnosis. It lights a spark in you that makes you want to give back to that community while pushing your own boundaries and having the time of your life!
