Living with type 1 diabetes can be challenging wherever you live but in some parts of the world the medical supplies to manage type 1 diabetes are entirely unaffordable or even unavailable. In these situations, children don’t get the chance to have the carefree fun that we enjoyed as kids and that’s why we’re challenging you and your friends to #BeAKidForAKid and play, post, pledge.

The ‘Be a Kid for a Kid’ challenge starts on October 10th — join us
