Gary Hall, Jr.
Someone truly inspirational, someone who defeated all the limitations of the body. Olympic swimmer Gary Hall, Jr. proved doctors wrong in 2000, a year after he was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. He was told that he would never again be able to compete at an Olympic level. But not just competing, that year, he took home his first individual gold medal by way of the 50-meter freestyle race. He repeated the win in 2004.
Hall then got intensely involved in efforts to cure the illness that almost curtailed his career and founded Foundation for Diabetes which supports cure-focused research, and he serves as a spokesperson for the Diabetes Research Institute [DRI]. “Diabetes doesn’t have to stand between you and your dreams, and that is why we are all here,” his words.
