T1DE is a  501(c)(3) volunteer organization whose mission is to empower individuals and families living with type one diabetes to prevent, delay, and possibly reverse the insidious physical and emotional complications of this progressive disease by providing and facilitating diabetes awareness, education, networking, support group and other programs to the greater Lynchburg area.

Memorial Day Run Walk 2022

Each year our families support a 10K run on Memorial Day, in cooperation with the Lynchburg Road Runners Club.

T1DE is proud that we do not ask for families to fundraise for the organization. Our funding is community-based primarily from the partnership with Lynchburg Road Runner’s Club for the Memorial Day 10K Walk and Run. T1DE assists in the fundraising and execution of the event which has been a highlight for runners, walkers, and their families every year.

Fun for the entire family, our after event includes Face painting, balloon sculptures, crafts and even photo-ops with our T1DE mini-ponies mascots! If you are in town for the holiday, be sure and come out to support our Veterans and your local diabetes community! We thank you for all of your support.
