More about ICD: The Charity was founded by Chris Jarvis, a former Olympic rower who succeeded largely due to meeting a teenaged rower who had a lot in common, including T1D. Heather Van der Geest didn’t have all the answers either, but together they took on overcoming health challenges related to competing in rowing with diabetes at the top of the world. They both ended up competing for team Canada in Athens Greece and played a critical role in the birth of ICD. We are a growing organization that has served thousands of participants and their families. With programs from simple to shattering norms – we look to develop our community to reach out and change lives. Join us.
Venue: Panorama Mountain Resort
