There are as many as three million Americans with type 1 diabetes. Healthcare costs for those three million averages $14.9 billion every year. Studies show that exercise improves diabetes management... and with better management, it's been proven that less complications arise later in life. Riding On Insulin is leading the charge by hosting action sports programs for those with T1D around the world. Through our programs, kids, teens and adults are getting active, getting empowered to take control of their diabetes, and getting connected with others who are just like them.
Riding on Insulin is proud to put together what we hope to be the largest group of type 1 and type 3 (loved ones and supporters) athletes ever to descend upon a single Ironman in September of 2015. Together, we will prove that anything is possible, despite living with T1D!
