Our vision is to instill resilience in those facing chronic diseases.
RIDING ON INSULIN empowers, activates and connects the global diabetes community through shared experience and action sports. In addition to establishing a comfortable environment, we strive to help families explore new passions, challenge T1D, and celebrate each other’s successes.
Founded by pro snowboarder Sean Busby in 2004, Riding On Insulin was born out of Sean's desire to give back to kids who inspired him to keep snowboarding after his own complicated diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes. Diagnosed with T1D at age 19, Sean read stories online of kids and teens living with the disease through JDRF Children's Congress. He figured if they could do it (and know life no differently), then surely so could he. He wanted to give back to those kids for inspiring him.
ARE YOU A TEEN?
63 miles above The Arctic Circle, from the comfort of Arctic Hive — an off-grid retreat center — we’re hosting a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for teens living with Type 1 diabetes: Six Days spent experiencing the vast wilderness of the Brooks Range with a small group of fellow T1Ds.
