Are You Up to the Challenge?

Ryan's ChallengeI was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes in 2011 and was told I’d never race again. (Pretty sure those doctors have been proved wrong!)

Although I didn’t have a choice in my type 1 diabetes diagnosis, you CAN prevent or delay type 2 diabetes and its deadly complications. It all starts with knowing your risk.

That’s why I am proud to introduce Ryan’s Challenge. Because for me, it’s personal.

Here’s how it goes:

  1. Take the free, quick and easy Diabetes Risk Test from the American Diabetes Association:
  2. Share the test with 5 people you care about, so they can learn their type 2 risk too.
  3. If your results showed you are at high risk, talk to your doctor. You can still take steps to prevent type 2.

I started working with the American Diabetes Association and the Drive to Stop Diabetes presented by Lilly Diabetes campaign to show that people living with diabetes can still achieve their dreams. With your help, we can continue to drive awareness and education. Together, we can Stop Diabetes®.

So, will you accept Ryan’s Challenge? Get pumped!

Thank you, on behalf of nearly 30 million Americans facing the daily challenges of diabetes.
