Meet and Greet with Charlie Kimball

Emerson won a contest sponsored by JDRF and Novo Nordisk, and the prize was a meet and greet with Charlie Kimball on Carb Day at the race track and tickets to the Indy 500.  We are huge race fans and were excited for Emerson to have her first experience at a race and to meet Charlie. 

In the meet and greet with Charlie, Emerson received an autographed poster and race car.  She and Charlie even shared CGM sites.  In the picture below, Charlie is pointing to his stomach were he was wearing his CGM sensor.  Emerson was ecstatic about meeting him and getting a blue and orange race car.  Our time with him was very brief but he seemed like a very nice gentleman. 


We sat in the Novo Nordisk area at the Indy 500 on Sunday and people were sporting a lot of blue and orange.  Unfortunately, Charlie did not win the race but we hope to see him back in Indy next year.

A big thanks to JDRF and Novo Nordisk for a great weekend.  (And a big thanks to diabetes for playing nice for the weekend!)
