Team Type 1
"Exercise is the billion dollar drug no-one ever prescribes" Phil Southerland
Team Type 1 Foundation is dedicated to the health and well being of everyone affected with diabetes. Our mission is to show that with proper exercise and equal access to medicine everyone with diabetes can show the world What's Possible.
The Team Type 1 Foundation is honored to officially partner with such a beloved cycling event in the Atlanta area. Our alliance with the VeloCity and the Grady Health Foundation allows us to continue increasing public awareness of diabetes and showing what’s possible with the condition. People with type 1 diabetes are frequently told they cannot participate in sports. The Team Type 1 Foundation works to change the perception of diabetes and sports, and together with VeloCity, we are eager to empower people to get out and ride.
The Team Type 1 Foundation has pledged to raise more than $100,000 around the event. As part of its fundraising efforts, the Team Type 1 Foundation will bring riders from the Team Novo Nordisk development team, all who race with type 1 diabetes.
All funds donated through VeloCity will be split 50/50 between both organizations for mutual growth.
Anyone that raises $500 will receive a limited addition Team Type 1 VeloCity kit to wear the day of the ride.
We look forward to having you help us fly the TT1 flag. For any questions please contact Nora McCulloch at Nora.firstname.lastname@example.org.
