The Bike Beyond Team is kicking off in NYC and crossing the finish line in San Francisco this summer, showing the world that anything is possible with Type 1 diabetes. These 20 incredible T1Ds will be destroying stereotypes along the way and organizing community events to raise awareness, to educate people about T1D and to help find a cure for the condition.

All funds raised go to education, advocacy and cure research for Type 1. Join the team today by signing-up now!
