Why do 100 miles when we can do just a little bit more?
Those living everyday with type one diabetes always have to do just a little bit more! They can’t eat food without counting carbs and giving themselves insulin. They have to always have supplies with them in the event of high or low blood sugar. When exercising, they have to be prepared in case their blood sugar drops. Parents of children with type one have to check their child’s blood sugar while they sleep. Diabetics have to endure thousands of needle injections to keep them alive. Type one diabetes is not easy. Neither is completing 101 miles.
Let’s go the distance to support type one diabetics by completing this challenge May 1st - June 14th.
Walk, run, ride a bike... just get moving!
(updated Monday nights)
All ages and abilities are welcome.
We encourage you to invite family and friends to join you in this event. Adults aim for 101 miles, children under 12 aim for 50! All finishers will receive a Cellmates On the Run t-shirt and certificate.
