Football has always been a part of Chris’ life, but that hasn’t always been easy. Growing up, he struggled with isolation and the stigma of managing his Type 1 Diabetes, both in general and when it comes to being active. His love of the game and all that comes with it, including the friendships, has motivated him to continue planning around his Type 1 and to spread awareness about moving more with a health condition.

How Chris Gets Moving
Chris spends a lot of his time playing football and futsal, and started the UK’s first team made up entirely of people with Type 1 Diabetes. One of the things he enjoys most about it is the community and connection he and his teammates share, and how much they can support each other.
