Like any workplace, here at Medtronic Diabetes, we go through phases of conversations and activities that are often the topic of hallway and cafeteria table conversations. One of the things you might hear around here lately is, “Did you see the video of that guy jumping out of a plane with Lenny the Lion? The one with an insulin pump?”

That guy jumping out of a plane just so happens to be one of our loyal customers named Michael Craig, who you might remember from the blog he wrote about his first 30 days on CGM earlier this year. Many of us here at Medtronic actually had the pleasure of being blown away when he came here recently to share about his adventurous life without limits. He is an adrenaline enthusiast, a professional skydiving instructor, and passionate advocate with diabetes. He filmed this fantastic video himself of a skydiving jump with his insulin pump and Lenny in tow. We are very excited about it and couldn’t help sharing with you, so check it out and share it with the next person who tells you that you can’t do something because of diabetes!
