  • Victoria: Exercise & Excellence
    April 30, 2017

Join ICD in our Exercise & Excellence Series in Victoria!

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: Soccer, Basketball Fitness and Diabetes Education.

Workshop Includes:
Active participants – our workshop will be conducted throughout the day to learn directly as we workout. ( known as “Experiential Learning”)
Workshop only – Those who are not able get active or are more interested in a speaker series are welcome to register and hear from our expert panel on exercise and excellence.

    Hi Chris,
    It’s mara Brenner here, Adin’s mom. He is now in his second year as a team Canada member ?? with gymnastics Canada! If you’re coming through Nanaimo there is an airhouse trampoline and parkour park where he works that just opened and his gym may be available and I’m sure adin would love to help out again….can’t commit to going to Victoria’s on this date as it’s canadas World Cup later that week in Calgary.
    FYI, he came in 13th at junior worlds last year in Denmark and a couple months ago won the info-pacific championship in New Zealand so life in sport with t1d is going well.
