Two days of skiing and snowboarding on the Snowplanet slopes with Riding on Insulin, direct from the USA! What a great way to spend a weekend. There were groups of beginners and groups of practised riders. On the Saturday night we had the largest Teen event in 8 years of NZ Riding on Insulin events and the Sunday all ages event was fully booked! The kids enjoyed catching up with old friends and making new friends. There were plenty of spontaneous snow fights and some snow tubing as well as plenty of skiing and snow boarding. Emma Twentyman who volunteers for DYA (Diabetes Youth Auckland) celebrated her eighth Riding on Insulin event by becoming a Youth Volunteer!

Lucie (14yrs) says, “I loved being in a Diabetes and Coeliac friendly atmosphere and being able to practise a sport I don’t do very often.    

It was great I could bring my cousin and hanging out with teens all facing the same challenges was special. Thanks ROI, I hope I can do this again next year! ”
