Cure Diabetes Ignorance!
In 2014, Team Diabadass made history as the first diabetic relay team in the longest single-state relay run in the US, the Capital to Coast Relay.

OUR MISSION
This year, we're doing it again, running 223 miles, day and night, from Austin to Corpus Christi on the Gulf Coast. Type 1s and Type 2s. And all athletes.

If you thought we were all lazy, unmotivated overeaters, wake up and smell the reality.

This team of diabetic athletes, Diabadasses, is going to blow up myths about the people who have diabetes.

MEET TEAM DIABADASS 2015
Who's on the team?

- Julie, type 1, and a veteran triathlete and marathoner
- Dave, type 1 marathoner, triathlete, & century cyclist

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Help support the relay team:
We'll have 6 runners at a time on the road, while the other six rest. Then we alternate. We're all chipping in money, time and equipment ourselves -- and we'd truly appreciate your donations of any amount to help us pay for van rental and gas, plus water, food and other cash expenses during the event.

Curing diabetes ignorance is a worthy goal -- but a cure for diabetes would be far better. That's why any funds you contribute here at GoFundMe that exceed our actual expenses will go to ADA to help fund research into a cure. 

Click here if you'd like to contribute directly to ADA.

Join Team Diabadass yourself:
You can also join Team Diabadass (running not necessarily required!).

Loans of equipment or donations of supplies
We'd be delighted to receive donations of supplies or loans of equipment, too. Or email us if you'd like to discuss.

Sponsorships
If your business or organization wants to be swept away by our media machine, email Don Muchow or Jeff Kilarski.

Thank you for your support -- and let's Cure Diabetes Ignorance together!

Team Diabadass just posted our Supplies Wishlist for our record-setting run this October. Chipping in for water, gels and other essentials (even the really unsexy ones, like hand sanitizer) helps us get out there and start blowing up myths. #CureDiabetesIgnorance
