Type 1 diabetes is a chronic disease with real life-threatening complications. But diabetes does not stop us from living, striving and thriving. In fact, the Type 1Ds that I’ve met are a motivated and active bunch of doers. I bet this guy could teach us all a thing or two about winning the race against diabetes?

Jay Hewitt has a vision. He’s driven to complete everything he begins, everyday. Jay is a dynamic speaker, successful lawyer and gifted triathlete. He doesn’t let anything slow him down or keep him from having a positive outlook on life. Not even diabetes. Listen to Jay’s own soundbite:

“I am an Ironman Triathlete, living with Type 1 diabetes since 1991. I started racing triathlons and marathons in 2000, just to prove that diabetes would not stop me. I was not very good, but I was relentlessly determined to get better, beat this disease. I love the pain of the training, the race, but especially The Finish Line.”

Jay Hewitt is the only athlete with Type 1 diabetes to qualify for the U.S. National Triathlon Team and he’s a motivational and inspirational speaker. You are invited to come meet him but you need to RSVP now to get your seat.
