Kyle Cochran, finalist on previous seasons of the nationally broadcast television series, American Ninja Warrior, will be attending American Diabetes Association Camp Aurora on June 30 and July 1 to talk about living with Type 1 diabetes.
Kyle, who was diagnosed at the age of 5, competed on seasons 4, 5, 6, and 7 of the show which features “The world’s most difficult obstacle course.” Kyle was the first person with diabetes to qualify for the American Ninja Warrior Competition, and the first to wear his insulin pump during the grueling multi-stage obstacle course in 2012.
Kyle decided to start competing on American Ninja Warrior to encourage other people with diabetes towards a life without limits.
“Diabetes is one of the most challenging obstacles you can imagine,” said Kyle. “I decided to compete in the American Ninja Warrior competition to prove to people with diabetes that they can overcome their personal obstacles and pursue their own passions and dreams.”
During his presentation; Not Letting Diabetes Stand in His Way since 1993, Kyle will share how his life-long love of competition and insulin pump therapy have helped him achieve successes in life.
Kyle’s participation is made possible by Tandem Diabetes Care.
