About us

Type-1 Lifting is an active lifestyle brand that helps give back to Children's Diabetes Foundation. Since being diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 35, creator and Personal Trainer Tom Lennon decided that he wasn't going to let this devastating news  keep him from reaching his fitness goals. Through his t-shirt company, Tom wanted to send the message that you can still do amazing things even if you have Type 1 (or Type 2) Diabetes. Working in a local children's hospital already, Tom would see children come in on a daily basis that were newly diagnosed with the disease or who were already living with it. He then decided that he wanted to donate a portion of his t-shirt proceeds to the Children's Diabetes Foundation in hopes of making a difference.
