Date:6/18/2012

INDIANAPOLIS, June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

News Highlights

  • Olympian Kris Freeman visits 10 #diabetes summer #camps; he has shared his #T1 story with nearly 5,000 campers through Lilly's camp program
  • Lilly Diabetes #diabetes #camp tour kicks off on June 20
  • Lilly Diabetes is one of the largest supporters of #diabetes #camps in the U.S.

Many children dream of being a superhero when growing up. To those with diabetes, that is exactly what they see in Kris Freeman.  Freeman, an Olympic cross country skier with type 1 diabetes, has shared his personal story―including high points and low points―with nearly 5,000 children at diabetes camps over the past seven years. This week, along with Lilly Diabetes, he kicks off his 8th annual U.S. diabetes summer camp tour.

Freeman Aims to Inspire 

When diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at age 19, Freeman was told that his dream of being an Olympic athlete was not possible. Since then, Freeman has transformed himself into one of the premier cross-country skiers in U.S. history, recently becoming the grueling 50K national champion for the fourth time, with consecutive titles in the last two years. While visiting 10 camps this year, Freeman will take part in this annual summer rite of passage once again and share the details of his journey to let campers with type 1 diabetes know the many things that are possible for people with diabetes.

"I enjoy visiting diabetes camps in my off-season because I learn from the campers as much as I hope they learn from me and my experiences," said Freeman. "I've come a long way on and off of the ski trail since I was diagnosed 11 years ago, and I hope to continually encourage young people to find that same strength and motivation to keep learning and to stay positive. Being at camp with others who have type 1 diabetes is a terrific place for those lessons to unfold."'/>"/>
