Be A T1D Hero!


What does it take to be a type 1 diabetic (T1D) Hero? A consistent, unwavering, every-day commitment to the cause.

Nick Jonas received this year’s Radio Disney Hero Award in recognition of his dedication to advocacy, education and a cure for type 1 diabetes on an everyday basis since he was diagnosed in 2005—including co-founding Beyond Type 1.

Now is your chance to BE A HERO for type 1 diabetes too! T1D HEROES are individuals that go above and beyond for the cause by raising funds to advocate, educate and cure type 1 diabetes.

BE A T1D HERO today by committing to raising $30 a month for a year! These funds will help raise awareness about T1D and the symptoms, provide teaching tools like Jerry the Bear to newly diagnosed patients, connect people with diabetes across the world through the Snail Mail Program and provide educational resources to people with diabetes (and those that care for them) across the globe.
