The discovery of insulin in Canada 100 years ago meant that a diagnosis of type 1 diabetes no longer led to a lifespan that would be measured in weeks or months. But living with diabetes consumes time, money and energy (physical and emotional). Reducing the burden of living with diabetes is important to me. Raising money to support research, improve care and advocate for people with all types of diabetes can help achieve this goal.
To mark the 100 year anniversary of the discovery of insulin and recognizing the hundreds of insulin injections and finger sticks taken by people living with diabetes every week ...
... I plan to cycle 100km every week throughout 2021.

- Would you consider donating 100 dimes ($10) or 100 quarters ($25) a month to Diabetes Canada?
- Could you give 100 loonies? Or 100 x $5 bills or $10 bills as a one time donation
- What could you do to raise money for Diabetes Canada?
- 10 sit ups
