Our mission is to empower : connect : support : educate all people with diabetes and all prone to diabetes, especially the alarming increase in childhood obesity and Type 2 Diabetes in young adults.
TeamBG is a not-for-profit social enterprise set up to provide the tools, education and opportunity for all people with diabetes to safely engage in sports and exercise.
In less than two generations, physical activity has dropped by 20% in the U.K. and 32% in the U.S. In China, the drop is 45% in less than one generation. Vehicles, machines and technology now do our moving for us. What we do in our leisure time doesn’t come close to making up for what we’ve lost.
More than 371 million people world wide have diabetes.
Our vision is a world where people don't die from diabetes.
Our mission: TeamBG inspires people with diabetes to achieve their sports and exercise goals, to educate people with diabetes of the benefits of sports and exercise and to equip them with the tools to achieve their goals.
Exercise can mean the difference between "medical management" and "lifestyle management" of Type 2 diabetes.
