Safety for our community, family and friends is the top priority of Type One. The 9th Annual Renegade Run Obstacle Course Race, sponsored by Type One, will now take place as a virtual event. During this challenging time, staying connected (and active) is more important than ever. While our event is typically held in October, the uncertainty of the virus has led us to make the decision to not have our 9th Renegade Run at the park. While the decision saddens us, we are determined to stay connected to you, and will move forward with a Virtual Run, which we promise will be unique to our Type One brand, and to you, our Renegades.
The purpose of our Virtual Run is to have fun, stay motivated and to connect with each other as we continue to raise awareness and funds toward a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D). Your registration fee supports our Type One Cares campaign, an amazing charity making huge strides to provide assistance to those living with T1D, while continuing to fund Dr. Faustman’s efforts to advance research toward a cure for disease.
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.
