Kate Hall-Harnden is a 25-year-old
Professional Track and Field
Athlete from Maine. Diagnosed with Type One Diabetes and Celiac Disease at age 10, Kate immediately learned how to manage both diseases full time and tackled them head on at a young age. Since the day she self-injected insulin for the first time, Kate has wanted to prove that chronic illness wouldn’t stand in the way of her dreams. Since then, she has only gotten stronger and became a National High School Record Holder in 2015, 2x NCAA Champion, Olympic Trial Finalist, and USA Long Jump Champion. Kate's dream is to become an Olympian and she won't stop working as hard as possible until her dream becomes reality.
