I have Type 1 diabetes and I am trying to get other people living with diabetes (Type 1 or 2) together once or twice every month to socialize through exercise activities -running, walking, jogging, biking, whatever!

People of all fitness levels are welcome and family and friend support/participation is encouraged too!

Meeting Saturday, November 12 and December 10 at Turning Point Park at the end of Boxart Street in Rochester! Meet at the trail map in the Boxart St parking lot at 8:30am. Dress for the weather and wear clothes that accommodate activity!

ALL LEVELS WELCOME!! Come and meet other people who want to live active with diabetes!!

I live in Webster and I think this is a great idea! I go to school in PA but this is definitely something I would be interested in for the summer!

Lindsey: reading a self help book gives you a sense of being in control because it suggests things you can do to help yourself. Tha's a positive, even if you never do any of the suggestions! Can be lot's more positives if you do some of them. Interesting effect isn't it.

That is wonderful! Wish i could join your group! I'm in Michigan, but that is still too far! I hope this works out for you!

Great idea! I wish there was a shorter distance between us because I would love to join.

Me, too, but I really like the weather in Hawaii better than what you have been having in NY recently! Makes it a lot easier to exercise outside year around, too!

This is a great idea!!!!! I won't be joining you cause I live in Hawaii, but it is a marvelous way to get support and exercise together.

Carol I have a friend in Hawaii that has a diabetes exercise group if you want me to get you in touch with her!

Sure, why don't you send me some contact information. I'm on the windward side of Oahu, but it's only 96 miles around the whole island, so if it's on Oahu, it's nearby!

I hope you succeed in your putting this together. We are having a hard time even getting a diabetic support group going here in Bandon and the only person I have found willing to ride 5 to 10 mile bike rides with me is my 10 year old granddaughter. Good luck!
