Hey everyone. T1D ultra runner here. Not a Camp Bluebonnet alum but wanted to spread the word: I am running across Texas (850 miles) starting 7 AM Sunday March 24th 2019 from San Jacinto Plaza in El Paso (we'll arrive an hour early at the start for photos and last minute prep) and ending around 4 PM Thursday April 18th at Texarkana TX City Hall.

As part of that effort, I'm trying to raise awareness of the struggles we T1Ds face trying to balance food, insulin, and physical activity. I'll also be raising funds for Texas T1D youth camps and a few other T1D-related charities.

More info on the run here: http://www.t1determined.org. If you're interested in supporting the run's beneficiaries, including Camp Bluebonnet, you can donate here: https://t1determined.org/beneficiaries/. If you'd like to meet me along the course of the run, please drop a line to [email protected].
I am an RN, CDE who volunteered at Camp Bluebonnet a number of years ago. Today my 7 yr. old grandson was newly diagnosed w/ T1. I would like to plan to volunteer again next year and bring my grandson with me. I appreciate an recent information on Camp Bluebonnet. I just retired and moved to Belton, TX. My grandson is from Abilene are.
Any Austin folks? Emergency babysitter needed for tomorrow for my T1 2.5 yr old and his twin brother.

Husband with meetings all day and I'm in orientation for my new job. I'm in NW Hills in Austin

Could use help Thursday and Friday as well.

Any contacts?

Pic of my sugar bear for attention.

💯Today is the 100th anniversary of the first insulin injection!! In January 1922, Leonard Thompson, a 14-year-old boy dying from type 1 diabetes, became the first person to receive an injection of insulin. Within 24 hours, Leonard’s dangerously high blood sugar levels dropped, but he developed an abscess at the site of the injection and still had high levels of ketones.

Collip worked day and night on purifying the extract even further, and Leonard was given a second injection on 23 January 1922. This time it was a complete success and Leonard’s blood sugar levels become near-normal, with no obvious side effects. For the first time in history, type 1 diabetes was not a death sentence. #historyofinsulin #firstinsulinshot #t1d #type1diabetes #type1strong #t1dkids

Bluebonnet Connections at the Round Rock Express game has been canceled for Sun, Aug 8th.  With increases in cases, and not being able to control crowds at the ballpark, we feel it’s best to not promote activities there.  The rest of the activities are still scheduled for August...the SUP is outside with an age group that can be vaccinated so we feel this is still a safe activity.  We hope to see all of our middle and high schoolers there!  Don’t forget to RSVP to:

US Olympic gymnast Charlotte Drury was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes a month before the first Olympic trial of 2021. Yesterday, in an Instagram post, she talked about her diagnosis and about heading to Tokyo with Type 1:

"I didn’t go into practice for a week. I didn’t even consider continuing with gym. This felt insurmountable and terrifying and there was just no way I could figure out how to manage a life changing diagnosis and get into Olympic shape in time for the first trial in 3 weeks. If it wasn’t for the unwavering support from @dooleylogan and my complete trust in him, I would’ve walked away for sure. But with his, and so many others, help, I started to figure out how to manage it and decided to give everything I had to the sport in the little bit of time I had left.⁠

Just 3 months later, I dropped 9 points off my A1c (not to mention learned what an a1c even was) became someone who carries a backpack full of juice boxes everywhere I go and in a few days, I’ll be heading to Tokyo on the Olympic team.⁠

Words can’t describe how hard this year has been…but through all the adversity I’m most proud of myself for not giving up. I found out that I’m tougher than I think I am."⁠

Thanks for sharing your story, Charlotte—this is EVERYTHING.
