INISI employees recently participated in the Blue Balloon Challenge, an initiative by Medtronic aimed at supporting children with type 1 diabetes. The challenge is a metaphor for living with diabetes, with participants having to keep a balloon in the air while working. This simulates having to constantly monitor and keep blood levels within certain margins, as is required with type 1 diabetes.
Our customer Diabeter, part of Medtronic, is engaged daily in providing care to children with Type-1 Diabetes. View and read Diabeter's story here.
Our employees enthusiastically participated in the challenge and we are proud of their participation. An impression of the challenge is captured in the video below and distributed via LinkedIn:
Get involved too!
We are happy that in this way we can also contribute a tiny bit to supporting children with type 1 diabetes. We call on everyone to also join the challenge by posting a video on social media with the hashtag #blueballoonchallenge. Medtronic will donate €5 to Life For A Child for every Blue Balloon Challenge post with this hashtag, so together let's make a difference for children with type 1 diabetes.
