Powering UP with Beyond Type 1 – Raising Money to Find a Cure for Type 1 Diabetes

Type 1 Diabetes is a part of life for us. 


It’s not something that keeps us from living life, but one that gives us a reason TO live life!


My husband Gary was diagnosed at the age of 23, after living life as a healthy and athletic guy. Without warning, his entire world was rocked causing him to learn a way of life involving needles and insulin. T1D means that Gary’s pancreas no longer produces insulin, so he has to manage his blood sugars through his eating, fitness, and constant monitoring of his blood through testing and correcting. Healthy living took on a whole new meaning. As his wife, my goal is to be his biggest cheerleader and also his biggest advocate. We POWER UP our life with T1D by staying active together and teaching our little girl how important this kind of lifestyle is for us all!



Beyond Type 1 is changing what it means to live with Type 1 diabetes!


This month, JOIN US as we educate, advocate, and work towards a cure for Type 1 diabetes. POWER UP brings you themed days, social media challenges, giveaways, mystery prizes + celebrity guests! POWER UP is all about spirit … a 4-week party in October to make a difference!


Our goal = RAISE MONEY TO FIND A CURE FOR T1D  … or bust!


One hundred percent of monies raised will go directly to the most promising efforts and programs working to educate, advocate and cure Type 1.
