“We’re so very grateful to all of our supporters. At our inaugural golf and tennis event last year, we raised over $60,000 in support of type 1 diabetes research and to assist those living with the disease,” said Paul Foti, co-founder of Type One. “We hope to match or exceed that amount this year. In addition to support for type 1 diabetes research, Type One helps provide scholarships to local children with type 1 diabetes to attend type 1 diabetes camp, as well as help provide qualifying recipients with assistance for diabetes management and treatment.”
Type One Impact
Over the past decade, Type One has made an incredible impact toward their mission of funding research to cure type 1 diabetes (T1D) and supporting those in need of help to manage their disease through their Renegade Run Obstacle Course Race. The Par and Serve for the Cure! golf and tennis tourney takes the place of the annual obstacle course race which had traditionally been held at Wompatuck State Park and Bare Cove Park in Hingham. To date, Type One Renegade Run events have generated over $120,000 in support of research at the Faustman Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH). The Faustman Lab is focused on discovering and developing new treatments for type 1 diabetes, a vaccine for the reversal of long-term type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. In addition to supporting the Faustman Lab at MGH, Type One donation and fundraising platforms help provide scholarships to local children with type 1 diabetes to attend type 1 diabetes camp, award high school students scholarships to continue their education, as well as providing qualifying recipients with assistance for diabetes management and treatment.
