Jul 11, 2014 8:34 AM - Recently, 51 kids ages 4 to 9 learned how to manage their Type 1 diabetes while having fun at a day camp at HealthTrack Sports Wellness in Glen Ellyn. Charlie Kimball, the first race car driver with diabetes to win an IndyCar Series race, was there to help them build model race cars and encourage them with his own story. "Being able to share my enthusiasm and passion for racing with these kids is very special," he said. "It reminds them they can do anything -- even drive a race car -- with diabetes."
