Beyond Type 1 was founded in 2015 by Juliet de Baubigny, Nick Jonas, Sarah Lucas and Sam Talbot. Beyond Type 1 is a new brand of philanthropy leveraging the power of social media and technology, changing what it means to live with Type 1 diabetes. By educating the global community about this chronic, autoimmune disease, as well as providing resources and support for those living with Type 1, Beyond Type 1 bridges the gap from diagnosis to cure, empowering people to both live well today and to fund a better tomorrow. 100% of every dollar raised directly supports the most promising global efforts and programs working to educate, advocate and cure Type 1 diabetes. Beyond Type 1 is a registered 501(c)3.
Summer 2017 – Team Bike Beyond will be embarking on an epic, 10-week adventure, pedaling from New York City on June 4 to San Francisco [tune in now]. The international team of 20 riders* hail from the US, UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. All are living with Type 1 diabetes — collectively with a whopping 263 years of experience! As they journey across the country, they’ll be destroying stereotypes and showing the world what living beyond Type 1 looks like. Sound outrageous? Sound like a double-dog-dare you? Sounds about right.
Cue: “Born to be Wild.” Are you playing your air guitar yet? Because Bike Beyond is literally a party on wheels, speeding across the US, “from sea to shining sea.” We’ll be stopping in all kinds of cool cities, hosting events and cutting loose, showing what it’s like to be a diabadass. And you don’t have to be a rider to join in the fun.
