Springbank, AB, Wednesday, October 5, 2016 – Juno-award winning country music artist, George Canyon will be landing his plane at the Springbank Airport to perform music and share stories of an inspired life with type 1 diabetes (T1D) through his ‘The Sky’s Not the Limit’ tour.
As a National Spokesperson for JDRF, George inspires people with T1D to pursue their dreams, no matter what the odds. George is a celebrated country music artist, a certified pilot and has completed seven and a half years of service as an honorary colonel in the Canadian Air Force.
“After the huge success in 2009 with ‘The Sky’s Not the Limit’ national events, I’ve been approached by many families to do it again,” said George Canyon. “I have been living with T1D since I was 14 and being able to connect with these kids and their families about the daily challenges we face, is of the utmost importance to me.”
This is a free, family-friendly event exclusively for kids living with type 1 diabetes and must register in advance by calling Duane Schreiner at the JDRF Calgary Chapter (403) 255‑7100. This event provides a great opportunity to meet incredible families living with T1D.
