Visit the POWER UP fundraising homepage HERE!


Welcome to 4 weeks of fun, fundraising, and celebration – a jolt of energy for the Type 1 diabetes community! POWER UP is Beyond Type 1’s annual, digital, worldwide fundraising campaign.  Last year, the Beyond Type 1 community raised half a million dollars as part of the Revlon Love is On Challenge and with your help, we hope to meet or beat that this year.

One hundred percent of monies raised will go directly to the most promising efforts and programs working to educate, advocate and cure Type 1. Where exactly does the money go? Explore our most recent Impact Deck to learn more.

While Beyond Type 1’s operating costs are covered by our Founders and Founding Friends, everything you love about Beyond Type 1 – the programs championing advocacy, education, and a cure for Type 1 diabetes – are only possible because of donations from the community. This is your organization, and POWER UP is your party.
