Until there’s a cure for T1D (Type 1 diabetes), our mission is to empower people of all ages affected by this disease to live life in full. We strive to broaden awareness, educate others, advocate on behalf of T1Ders and their families, and to support T1Ders and their families however we can.
Our tournaments are played with a big time vibe that connect our communities and broaden T1D awareness and public involvement; all while empowering people with T1D to live life in full. SLAMT1D supports entire T1D families: spouse, caregivers and siblings. We seek to improve T1D education among school nurses, athletic trainers and coaches and connect T1D patients with game-changing resources. We issue grants and sponsorships to other T1D organizations; help children with T1D to attend camps and participate in sports activities and programs; provide scholarships for student-athletes with T1D; advocate for T1Ders in their communities and for better access to and more affordability of life-sustaining medications such as insulin; promote and support activities and sports programs for student-athletes and adults with T1D
