Our team, Kolbe's Heroes, is walking to help JDRF create a world without Type 1 Diabetes (T1D).
Kolbe was diagnosed September 26, 2014 with T1D; 4 days shy of his 4th birthday. Putting the diabetes aside, Kolbe loves to fish and play baseball.
Kolbe wears a insulin pump. Instead of multiple injections each day, we do site changes every 2-3 days. He wears a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) that helps us monitor his blood sugars day and night. Each day brings different challenges for Kolbe but diabetes does not stop him. Kolbe has had to adapt to things much quicker than other kids his age and is currently trying to learn how to self manage on his own.
There is hope! The advancements that are being worked on are amazing. We need your help to get to our ultimate goal, A CURE! Let's show Kolbe and all that battle Type 1 Diabetes that we will not stop until there is a cure and join the walk on Sunday, October 6, 2019.
