About Type One
Type One, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, recognizes a world free of type 1 diabetes (T1D) and is dedicated to that future by raising public awareness and funds toward a cure through research. Type One was founded in 2012 by a group of South Shore residents to support their friend Tyson Sunnerberg, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, when he was 21 years old. On November 25, 2012, the first ever Renegade Run Obstacle Course Race was held raising awareness and funds toward a cure.
To date, Type One’s Renegade Run has generated tens of thousands of dollars to support the Faustman Lab at MGH, which is run by Dr. Denise Faustman, director of the Immunobiology Laboratory at MGH, and is focused on discovering and developing new treatments for type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. Dr. Faustman is currently leading a human clinical trial program testing the efficacy of the BCG (bacille Calmette-Guerin) vaccine for reversal of long-term type 1 diabetes.
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.
