For someone with Type 1 Diabetes, managing the delicate balance between insulin intake, food consumption, and energy expenditure can be difficult. Because of this, many people diagnosed with T1D are told to stop exercising by their doctor. This can be a huge blow to an active (or even an inactive) person who has just learned that their body is failing them due to an autoimmune condition.


The Diabetes Training Camp (DTC) Foundation funds unique and custom week-long and three-day boot camp sessions to inspire, motivate, and educate the community of people with diabetes on how to use exercise to manage their diabetes. The DTC is staffed with endocrinologists, exercise physiologists, nutritionists, certified diabetes educators, mental skills experts, professional coaches, and a top-notch medical team all focused on creating a safe environment to help folks learn how to manage diabetes and exercise. Each day at DTC includes lectures, exercise sessions, one-on-one consultations, and community building activities. Campers leave with knowledge, a renewed sense of hope, and a community of experts and fellow campers to lean on.


A donation from McCormick Taylor’s Charity Committee helps fund the local DTC in Lancaster, PA, where people living with diabetes in the area can learn how to incorporate exercise into their lives.
