Special Guest Speaker
A special guest speaker, Dr. Denise Faustman, director of the Immunobiology Laboratory at MGH who oversees the Faustman Lab, will talk about discovering and developing new treatments for type 1 diabetes to supporters during the reception.
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. This year’s Par For The Cure Golf 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 $100,000 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, as well as providing qualifying recipients with assistance for diabetes management and treatment.
