Team WILD: We Inspire Life with Diabetes


Be an athlete first, and a person with diabetes second. That is the mission of Team WILD. WILD stands for we inspire life with diabetes.

It is believed that being an athlete helps gauge your mind set for that of optimal performance and doing so empowers your body. Prioritizing nutrition, stress, sleep, and exercise helps to excel your athletic abilities. In elevating your body to achieve optimal athletic ability – you raise your overall health (mental, emotional, physical), diabetes included.

It’s no secret: diabetes imposes a daily challenge on the lives it affects. Team WILD is committed to showing people with diabetes that they can achieve the limit of athleticism it takes to be the healthiest person they can be.

The founder of Team WILD is Mari Ruddy. Many has lived with type 1 diabetes for 30 years and is a two time breast cancer survivor. She founded Team WILD in 2008 after searching high and low for resources for women with diabetes who wanted to exercise safely and with expert guidance.
