Thank you for considering a contribution to Diabetes Training Camp. DTC Foundation was established in 2015 with a mission to inspire, motivate and educate by delivering unique and customized programs and coaching that empower the community of people living with diabetes to thrive.

Since creating DTC Foundation we have been able to offer $400,000 in camp subsidies and scholarships for life-changing programs and services.

In just 5 yerars, through our wonderful donors’ contributions, we have surpassed $600,000 in fundraising from the annual November COME EXPERIENCE THE MAGIC benefit. All of these funds have been used for scholarships to get more diabetes warriors to camp and to create new and unique services to help them thrive.

Your contribution will help us as we continue to map out our plan and establish Diabetes Training Camp as the non-profit leader and innovator within the diabetes community, continuing to change lives.

Jody Corcoran

Jody Corcoran has partnered with her husband, Dr. Matt Corcoran, to provide services and run Diabetes Training Camp and DTC Foundation for the past 12 years. She seeks first-hand how the organization transforms the lives of its campers.

She is committed to working hard to continue to provide the much needed community DTC offers to those living with T1D, and access and services for the diabetes community to learn, train and connect while also filling each camper with empowerment and confidence.

She also serves on the DTC Foundation Scholarship Committee and knows the enormous impact money raised through this fundraiser has on people who need support and knowledge to thrive with T1D.

Aino "Aiccis" Bloom

Aino has been thriving with T1D for over 50 years and knows first-hand the challenge of managing the autoimmune disease 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. She is a mother of three young adults and works full time in a family-owned business. She lives a very active life. Not only does she workout regularly at the gym, but she loves to ski, hike, cycle and walk on the boardwalk. Her T1D can make these activities frustrating and challenging.

She is a DTC alumni and there she learned new techniques and ‘tricks’ to avoid blood sugar highs and lows during exercise. She also appreciated the education and refreshers about carb/insulin ratios and carb/protein counting. Her favorite part of the camp was meeting others living with T1D, the peeps with beeps.

She’s so grateful that DTC exists and will utilize the priceless coaching techniques, professional mental health coaching, nutritional help and all the new and exciting technologies and pump therapies available.
