Zverev Launches Foundation To Support Diabetics

German reveals he is a diabetic

Alexander Zverev announced on Saturday the launch of the Alexander Zverev Foundation, which will support children with diabetes and provide medication for those in developing countries with the condition.

“Today, the Alexander Zverev Foundation has officially come to life, supporting children with type 1 diabetes and helping people prevent type 2 diabetes by living a healthy and active life,” Zverev wrote in his announcement. “Our mission is to provide insulin and life-saving medicine to children in developing countries and those in need."

As part of his announcement, the German revealed he is diabetic.

“As a type 1 diabetic myself, I want to encourage children with diabetes to never give up on their dreams no matter what others might say to you,” Zverev added.

The 25-year-old ended his post with a quote: “The only limit is the one you set yourself.”

Zverev is currently recovering from a right ankle injury he suffered during Roland Garros, for which he underwent surgery in June.
