TuDiabetes Talks Live Chat! Cycling 205.5 miles with Diabetes! 8pm ET, 5pm PT
July 20, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 pm
Hi! My name is Anthony Hightower. I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at age 13 and have spent my adult life seeking to raise awareness, educate, and support research efforts.
As an avid cyclist, I co-founded a team called “Duck Fiabetes” and have leveraged this passion to raise over $60,000 to the American Diabetes Association’s Tour de Cure. I was recently a camp counselor at Camp Hodia, a camp for diabetic youth, where I was camp counselor to 12 teenage boys.
I was born and raised in Northern California. I own and operate an industrial Shrink wrap business. In my free time I love talking about Diabetes hanging out with family, friends, and my fur babies (Chelsie and Brady).
