POWER UP: The 2018 Fundraising Campaign for Beyond Type 1


Visit the POWER UP fundraising homepage and get started partying for POWER UP HERE!

POWER UP is your opportunity for 100% of every dollar you give to go directly back to the Type 1 diabetes community.

For 2 weeks from October 1 to October 14, the Type 1 diabetes community is providing a jolt of energy for the most promising programs in T1D. POWER UP is Beyond Type 1’s annual, digital, worldwide fundraising campaign.  Last year, the Beyond Type 1 community raised over $200,000 dollars – we hope to meet or beat that this year. Can you help us?
