For a limited time only – host Bike Beyond – The Documentary to a screen near you! Until November 30, 2018, Beyond Type 1 is offering YOU the opportunity to share this extraordinary, inspiring film with your community. So whether you partner with a local theatre or school, show the film at your diabetes camp (it is appropriate for all ages!), or pop up an outdoor screen and enjoy under the stars with friends and family – this film will have you on your feet cheering for the incredible individuals who forged an unbreakable bond and overcame countless obstacles.

Narrated by actor and Type 1 Victor Garber, the documentary follows Team Bike Beyond, 20 amateur cyclists living with Type 1 diabetes, on their epic 4200 mile adventure across America. From NYC to Nashville to Denver to California – through rainstorms and windstorms, battling lows and achieving new highs, the team’s journey inspired thousands and changed them individually and collectively as they became #OneTeamOneFamily.

With special appearances by Nick Jonas, Sam Talbot, Crystal Bowersox, Eric Pasley and Love + Theft.

Directed by Neil Greathouse, includes an original soundtrack available on Spotify + iTunes.

What people are saying about the film …

“As a diabetic, this film makes me feel so much stronger. It really helped me see the potential i can have living with type 1 diabetes and that you can do anything you want. Diabetes is not something that is going to stop you.” – Kristina (camper at Ho Mita Koda)

“People were so fascinated to learn about what Type 1 takes the whole summer.” – Abbey B.

“I just cried non-stop — it is awesome! I am feeling so emotional and so grateful that things like this are in (my daughter’s) life. – Jane K.

“The documentary was incredibly well done. Victor Garber’s narration was fantastic – smooth and clear without taking attention away from what was happening onscreen – and the visuals were beautiful. I liked how footage from the riders’ GoPro cameras was incorporated so viewers could get an accurate representation of their perspectives from the bikes. It made me appreciate the physical intensity of the ride that much more, because diabetes aside, cycling such a long distance filled with rocky roads and steep inclines is extremely demanding on the body.” – Molly J.
