A fundraising page supporting Beyond Type 1 and not Connected in Motion, you ask? Let me explain why you should take a moment and donate!
For eight years, I've been working with CIM - You've probably seen our pictures from across Canada in in the United States. Wait, the United States, you ask? CIM has started doing programming in the US, but as a Canadian Charity, cannot fundraise. We have been so lucky to have got to know the team at Beyond Type 1 over the past year and a bit - we are SO on the same page. Although CIM can't raise our own funds in the US, we are able to partner with wonderful organizations like Beyond Type 1, and through partnering, we've made countless new connections with the Type 1 community, been able to tell our stories of life without limits, and had the chance to bring people out to our US Slipstream Weekends who we would never have been able to without Beyond Type 1s support.
It's important to us that Beyond Type 1 is able to continue to support the community and organizations like Connected in Motion. If you love what we do as an organization, but are living in the US, this is your chance to give back - The money raised through this campaign (including the $1 million that Beyond Type 1 is going to win <---think big, people!) will continue to help other non-profits in the Type 1 space, and help our community thrive.)
Want to learn more about CIM? Read on and learn more about the type of organizations that the folks at Beyond Type 1 are stoked on:
Connected in Motion is the charity that I hold closest to my heart. The organization has changed my life. Through CIM I have been connected to individual who live their life without limits and who motivate me each and every day to not only accept, but embrace my diabetes.
Connected in Motion is a community of individuals who share a vision:
To create a culture of support and engagement in diabetes self-management through peer-based experiential diabetes education, sport and outdoor adventure pursuits.
By creating a community that is motivating, supporting and inspiring individuals to take charge of their health today, CIM is helping to improve the quality of life for people with diabetes now and tomorrow.

I look forward to sharing the adventures, successes, and experiences that will be made possible through your donation.
