Lace up your skates and join our Exercise & Excellence Series in Owen Sound!


ICD is a leader in exercise and diabetes with experts in the science who talk the talk and athletes who walk the walk. We’ve hosted thousands of type 1’s in everything from a fun day of sport to week long camps and extreme challenges. We focus on how to manage diabetes effectively in the midst of real life challenges and use active programs to bring strategies to life. If you’re looking to share a fun day of sports with peers, build on diabetes skills or see why ICD has a 100% participant response rate for motivation to live better with diabetes, come pay us a visit.

What: Our leaders include passionate and world class athletes who can provide participants with knowledge of life with T1D that can help them reach their goals. Participants will get active as a group and dive into a variety of exercise while managing diabetes together.

A unique part of our program is in the ‘workshop’ that goes beyond the typical activity based coaching and uses the team’s skills to address the challenges and struggles that come up with diabetes. There will be opportunities to discuss and build a better understanding of how our bodies work and how to make a plan that is flexible and ready to be as active as you are.

Activities include: Skating and Hockey

Active participants – our workshop will be conducted throughout the day to learn directly as we workout. ( known as “Experiential Learning”)
