We are two friends from opposite sides of the Atlantic who share Nordic roots, a passion for aerospace, and year-long fitness goals focus on cross-country skiing.
Fly with us along the 55 kilometer course of America’s most famous cross country ski race, the American Birkebeiner, in support of Type 1 Diabetes Awareness and Research!
It is our goal through "Fly for Diabetes" to engage the aviation and space community in supporting the notion that Type 1 diabetes need not limit any child's or adolescent's aspirations... indeed, these children and adolescents can reach the moon!

This fundraiser is for the benefit of Barndiabetesfonden - the Swedish Child Diabetes Foundation - as it is the only foundation in Sweden which specifically funds research on diabetes among children and adolecents; primarily type 1 diabetes by a vast majority.

You can read more about us and our project at

Thank you for supporting our cause!
Roger Sethsson and David Lysholm McKay
