Team Novo Nordisk 2014 #DiabetesEmpowered Grand Prize Winner
Zander’s Message:

Well, I would’ve liked for a long time would tell. And now I thought it would be now! When I was first diagnosed diabetes, I was somehow lost, I was very afraid that I would not be able to train my sport anymore. But after some days, I remembered about your team`s (TNN) I had heard of it before, so I searched the Team Novo Nordisk, and landed on your page, I read about your team`s, and found out that you were able cycling both Mtb and Road with Diabetes. I was actually quite happy. You people inspired me and gave me hope again. I can not describe how happy I am for it today Thank you so much whole TeamNovoNordisk. You guys and girls changed my life. And to the last: We ride. We run. We swim. We race to change diabetes. #DiabetesEmpowered #ChangingDiabetes #TeamNovoNordisk
