Connect. Challenge. Explore.

Creating opportunities for people with Type 1 Diabetes of all ages to overcome challenges and find the support.

I Challenge Diabetes fosters a community of people with Type 1 Diabetes who, through experiential education and adventure, provide each other with the skills and confidence to overcome the daily challenges and create a new expectation for what we can accomplish.

We focus on how to manage diabetes effectively in the midst of real life challenges and use active programs to bring strategies to life.

We’ve hosted thousands of type 1s in everything from a fun day of hiking or paddling to week-long sports camps and extreme adventure challenges.

I Challenge Diabetes’ Mission is to connect, empower and support people living with diabetes through mentorship and challenging programs.


Our Vision is for people living with diabetes have the skills, support, and courage to face challenge and discover new levels of what is possible for them. Together, we apply strategies to overcome  obstacles and grow to take ownership for our health.

Each individual may have a different starting point and we meet there to create and celebrate goals together. Life with diabetes demands a lot of us, but the resulting strength gained can expand our horizons.

Raising Funds in Montréal

“While finding a cure is the long term goal for diabetes, the lives of diabetics NOW are just as important! ICD focuses on how to manage diabetes effectively in the midst of real life challenge and uses active programs to bring strategies to life. Our goal this year is to raise $100,000 to create supportive programs which will continue to improve the lives of type 1 diabetics! I know that with all of your support, we can reach it!” – Alex Cooper, Organizer
