Riding On Insulin was founded by pro backcountry snowboarder and T1D Sean Busby in 2010 and became an official 501(c)(3) nonprofit shortly after. We've taught thousands of kids and teens how to ski, snowboard, surf & mountain bike over the years and currently have camps in ten states.
Our mission is to empower, activate and connect the Type 1 Diabetes community through shared experience & action sports. Our core programs are ski/snowboard, surf and mountain bike camps for kids and teens ages 7-17 living with T1D. These experiences are funded by our generous partners, donors and peer-to-peer fundraising by campers and coaches. We also have a number of fundraising retreats in the Alaskan Arctic to support our mission.
Riding On Insulin Founder/Executive Director Sean Busby is a professional backcountry snowboarder with T1D who has backcountry snowboarded all 7 continents, and lives above the Arctic Circle in Alaska.
