And the 2014 Inspiration Award goes to…

Connected in Motion is driven by its community. Each and every one of our community members inspire us to grow––to push harder to redefine life with Type 1 diabetes and to breathe fresh air into diabetes education.

Awarded for the first time in 2012, the CIM Inspiration Award recognizes the individual whom has inspired us, and others living with type 1 diabetes, to live life without limits.

This year, there was no doubt who would be receiving the CIM Inspiration Award. There was one woman among us whose energy drives the entire community to do more, for more people with Type 1 diabetes. Congratulations to the 2014 CIM Inspiration Award winner, Stephanie Brodie! 

Steph (ironically, along with 2013’s Inspiration Award Winner, Amy Burrows) was the driving force behind the creation of one of CIM’s most energy filled and anticipated events of the year – Trampoline Dodgeball. She also brought to life the first ever Intro to Spin Day in partnership with Good Life Fitness. She is constantly looking for ways to share her love for fitness and sport with the Type 1 community, convincing people of the power of being active in rocking Type 1 diabetes. Steph is the Type 1 community’s biggest advocate, always looking for ways to spread the word and connect with the unconnected.

Next time you see Steph, be sure to give her an extra high five.

Thank you for everything you do for the diabetes community, Steph! Congratulations on being named the 2014 Connected in Motion Inspiration Award Winner!
