In June of 2019, I’ll be teaming up with Patrick Mertes, a fellow type 1 diabetic, to attempt to summit the 50 US State Highpoints (the tallest peak in each state) in 50 days or less. We’ve committed to this project to prove that any goal, no matter how big, is possible with type 1 diabetes.
We’ll be skiing, climbing, running, and hiking over 315 trail miles, as well as driving over 16,000 miles to reach each peak, all while navigating the highs and lows of type 1 diabetes.
With 35 peaks accessible by either car or a moderate hike, we hope to see you join us and help in establishing a national network of outdoor adventurers affected by diabetes.
