About Us

Anna Tiedeman Irwin, Elizabeth Kramer and a team of volunteers from the D.C. area founded the Dodging Diabetes® charity in 2005 to raise money and awareness to defeat diabetes for good. Both Anna and Elizabeth have brothers who live with Type 1 diabetes. Dodging Diabetes® has netted over $60,000 for the Joslin Diabetes Center through its annual charity dodgeball tournaments.

“Diabetes is a tough disease to live with. We know this first hand because we watch our brothers Andy and David live with it every day – pricking their fingers to test their blood sugar several times a day, taking insulin every time they eat, and living with the consequences of high or low blood sugars if they miscalculate their insulin levels. Joslin has helped Andy and David successfully manage their diabetes. We hope you’ll join us in helping Joslin continue it mission of fighting diabetes in all of its forms.”
