I remember first seeing Kris Freeman when he was 21 at a diabetes conference. Two years after he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, Eli Lilly began sponsoring his dream of becoming an Olympic cross-country skier. During his off-season, you can find Kris at diabetes camps inspiring children to follow their dream. He is the only person with diabetes to compete in a winter endurance sports event at the Olympics.
