Founded to help individuals better manage life with diabetes, Insunlindependence organizes adventure expeditions, recreation groups, fitness training, and educational programming. Insulindependence's Junior Captain mentorship program teaches youth with Type 1 diabetes to set personal fitness goals and achieve them through hands-on activities such as kayaking, hiking, and running in the wilderness.
The program pairs Captain Mentors with Junior Captains (mentees), providing opportunities for youth to develop lifelong relationships, interact with their peers in engaging and challenging environments, and encourage Junior Captains to be advocates for diabetes awareness and leaders in their communities. Past program participants have achieved goals such as competing in national high-school sports competitions and completing half marathons and triathlons. However, the costs of training and traveling for such events can be prohibitively expensive for many families. Insulindependence aims to expand its outreach in the upcoming year by providing more scholarships for the mentorship program, and the organization needs additional funding to sponsor Junior Captains who may not otherwise be able to afford the program, including the costs of lodging, food, travel, and the culminating event of the program.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help youth with diabetes to set and achieve new fitness goals. If G-Team members raise $250, then Insulindependence can fund a one-month membership to its mentorship program for one child and his or her family. Each additional donation will go toward funding another month of membership.
Unlike traditional Groupon deals, G-Team campaigns typically don't offer you a "discount" or "savings." So "buyer" beware—when you click "Buy" to donate your time or money to a worthwhile G-Team cause, the only discount you may receive is 100% off free, priceless karma. Read more about G-Team.
