I’m the mom of a T1D who’s now 21 years old. Her life has changed with camp Carowanis. Since she was diagnosed, I have been involved with the foundation’s activities. My first involvement started 6 years ago with Scotiabank Challenge while I ran a half-marathon. Since then, I’ve been trying to do it every year. This year, the challenge had to be reviewed and was made in a virtual way. On the day of the race, […] I really didn’t feel like running, however I thought about my daughter who needs to manage her diabetes whether she feels like it or not. I started running and in the end, I really had fun.
