Annual Tandem Carvathon

Days are getting shorter. Leaves are starting to fall off trees. Everything seems to be pumpkin flavored. Walmart already has their Christmas decorations out. Halloween is coming!

We partnered with our favorite pump decorators at Pump Peelz to bring you the first annual Tandem Carvathon! We wanted to challenge the community to get their carving tools out and create some diabetes themed pumpkins.

Tandem’s Community Relations Coordinator Luke Henning carved his own to show you what’s possible:

Interested in participating? It’s really quite simple. All you have to do is share a picture of your carved pumpkin on Instagram1 with the hashtag #tandemcarvathon16 by November 1st. Pump Peelz will send all participants a coupon for 50 percent off your next Pump Peelz. In addition, three lucky participants will be randomly selected by Pump Peelz to receive a $10 Pump Peelz gift card which can be applied to any items in their store.2

We can’t wait to see what kind of creative designs the community comes up with!  

1Participation limited to Instagram. To collect your prize make sure your post is set to ‘public.’ Photo sharing guidelines.

2We will try our best to fulfill all participants. If it has been a two weeks and we haven’t reached out please email a photo of your pumpkin to community@tandemdiabetes.com.

From time to time, we may pass along: suggestions, tips, or information about other Tandem Insulin Pump user experiences or approaches to the management of diabetes. However, please note individual symptoms, situations, circumstances and results may vary. Please consult your physician or qualified health care provider regarding your condition and appropriate medical treatment.
