Hello, and welcome to my fundraising page!

My name is Anissa Gamble and here’s a quick snapshot of my journey thus far. I grew up in Fredericton, New Brunswick where I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at the age of 8. When I was 14, I left home to attend Appleby College in Oakville, Ontario to pursue my education and hockey career. Post high school, I went on to play division 1 hockey in the NCAA at Robert Morris University (RMU). At RMU, I majored in biology with a concentration in pre-med, and minored in chemistry. Today, I’m doing my masters in experimental surgery, where I’m researching islet cell transplantation for type 1 diabetes at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. 

So why should you donate/ why do I need your help? In August, I will be embarking with a team of 13 adults with type 1 diabetes to backpack a 58km Trek of the North Coast Trail in Cape Scott Provincial Park ( NW of Vancouver Island) for 1 week. My goal is to encourage and educate those living with diabetes to prove you can go beyond the limits. 

The best part, you will be supporting Connected in Motion (CIM), a charity close to my heart! CIM is the only organization of its kind providing endless support, adventure and programming for people living with diabetes. Also, its Canadian Based! Feel free to find out more about our CIM team at http://www.connectedinmotion.ca/2017-adventure-team/

Thank you for your support and don't forget to follow me on Instagram (niss78), twitter (niss78) or Facebook to view my progress towards the event. Also, please share with all your friends and please note if you donate from the USA, it will cost you less due to the currency!

 

Thanks so much for your generosity!
