Race car driver Charlie Kimball is the first and only diabetic to compete in the Indy Grand Prix. In this clip he meets with families from the Juvenile Diabetes Association before the big race, showing off his car and telling kids with Type 1 that living with diabetes doesn’t have to slow you down.
“I get to tell them that they can live their dreams,” Kimball says…and that’s a message that should encourage all of us!
