Riding On Insulin was founded by pro backcountry snowboarder & 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 total states.
Our mission is to empower, activate & 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 travels the world to snowboard remote mountains and lives above the Arctic Circle in Alaska.
