Max Domi is a Canadian NHL player who plays for the Arizona Coyotes and who also happens to live with type 1 diabetes. I had the privilege of meeting Max Domi a few years ago in London, as he played for the London Knights, an OHL team. It is outstanding to see how far he has come since then and especially in regards to his involvement in the diabetes community.

The Powered by Accuracy Campaign is made up of many important resources and tools for those that are looking to incorporate fitness into their lifestyle while managing diabetes. Let's face it, exercise and diabetes is not easy, but having amazing resources such as Powered by Accuracy, those looking to get the most out of their fitness and diabetes, have that opportunity.
The website is made up of a lot of different resources including videos of professionals giving their educated input. On there, I see familiar faces such as Mike Riddell, who I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with in 2013. Another inspiring face is Dessi Zarahrieva, who is a MMA fighter and also lives with type 1 diabetes.
This event proved that community, education and activity is key in the success of diabetes and I look forward to exploring Powered by Accuracy even more, to learn how I can better my fitness along with better management of my diabetes.
