I can’t remember if I first heard about Road ID® from Harry or Gary – they both wear them. But I do remember later hearing about it being used as a medical ID for kids from Reyna – that woman is full of helpful tips!
For years, Caleb used silicone bands that were engraved with all the critical information right on the band. He had several colors and patterns and he loved them. It was always a very sad Caleb that got off the bus with a broken band in his hand when one bit the dust.
The price for those bands got to be a little too much for my liking and although Caleb still had several in inventory, I kept my eyes peeled for an appropriate replacement. Road ID® fit the bill!
Santa had the same idea. He brought both Colin and Caleb Road ID®s this past Christmas. They each have the Wrist ID Thin with several different colored bands to switch out. Colin has one because he runs and bikes by himself quite a bit. The difference between Colin’s and Caleb’s is the extra info of “Type 1 Diabetic/Peanut Allergy” on Caleb’s.
How can I not love the fact that something that Caleb needs because he has diabetes is something that non-D brother Colin needs too? Surprisingly, this was one of Caleb’s favorite Christmas presents, and Lila actually felt a little left out that Santa didn’t bring her one. (Her birthday is coming up though, and it’s on her list).
I must mention that their customer service is amazing! Santa used their measuring chart to determine what size band to get but he must have been drinking spiked coco because the one he chose was a bit too big. Getting them replaced was easy and pleasurable. They have our family’s business for life.
Caleb had his Road ID® on at TriCamp and guess who else wears one! 😉
I just ordered another and was reminded that they contribute a portion of your purchase to an organization of your choice – I chose JDRF!
