INTRODUCING: Type One Run, a Program of Beyond Type 1
Beyond Type 1 is proud to present Type One Run: an awesome way to connect in person with other people with type 1 diabetes (T1Ds) in your city or town! Type One Run is a group of ordinary folks dedicated to building support + community for those affected by type 1 diabetes through running. This is a movement of free, inclusive meet-ups easy to join or start in your hometown.
Picture this: you’re jogging, and your blood sugar drops quickly. You have to stop for a snack—usually something that would make you feel embarrassed or guilty… but your running buddies all live with type 1, too. Not only are they happy to take a break, they even have extra low supplies in case you need them. “Leave No Ones Behind”—that’s what Type One Run is all about!
By joining forces with Type One Run, we’re expanding the opportunities to connect face-to-face with the online type 1 diabetes + Beyond Type 1 community. Type One Run currently has 22 chapters globally—and with the help of the Beyond Type 1 community, we’re about to take things to the next level. Reach out to get started with Type One Run and to connect with other Type 1s in your community. Most importantly—have fun. Connect directly here.
