This year, his unstoppable spirit will again be on display at 10 diabetes camps across the country in conjunction with the Lilly Camp Care Package program, one of the largest support initiatives for diabetes summer camps in the United States. To help share Freeman's story and to kick off the 9 th year of the camp tour, a documentary-style video is now available showcasing Freeman's perseverance and health challenges as he aims for gold at the 2014 Winter Olympics.

"As I prepare for my next Winter Games and pursue my dream, it's my goal to make sure that each child I meet this summer feels my belief in them and their ability to pursue theirs."
