Teenagers lean over a fence on a sunny day


Who would volunteer to spend a weekend with a bunch of teens with type 1? A bunch of people who’ve been there! We’re talking about teen retreats – and what even adults can learn – about the power of connection.

Patrick Mertes has lived with type 1 since he was a child. If that name sounds remember, he’s one of the climbers from the 50-in-50 project where he and a friend climbed the highest peak in all 50 states in 50 days a couple of years back. He also runs a fantastic family and teen retreat in North Carolina.
