Beyond Type 1 Endurance Team
The Beyond Type 1 Endurance Team is a community of triathletes, ultra-runners, marathon swimmers, and endurance athletes of all kinds dedicated to the common goal of supporting people with diabetes. We believe it takes all “types”. The team is inclusive of people with Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes, and those supporting them. We are a community to share our training goals, our successes, our challenges – diabetes related or otherwise – to find races to join together, to cheer each other on and to encourage each other to share their race goals by joining a charity and giving back while doing so. Our community understands your need to reach individual goals.
What does it mean to join the team?
When you join the Beyond Type 1 Endurance Team, you’re joining a community of athletes dedicated to racing together (in person or virtually!) and supporting one another throughout their race seasons. Our team also comes with the added bonus of giving back to a great organization.
The Beyond Type 1 Endurance Team is dedicated to changing what it means to live with diabetes by supporting nonprofit organization Beyond Type 1. Through platforms, programs, resources, and grants, Beyond Type 1 is uniting the global diabetes community and providing solutions to improve lives today. Founded in 2015 with a focus on education, advocacy and the path to a cure for Type 1 diabetes, Beyond Type 1 has grown to also include programs for those with Type 2 diabetes.
