Who is Team Type 1?
TT1 was established to deliver hope and inspiration to the 1.2 billion people around the world affected by diabetes.

Comprised of more than 170 world-class athletes all living with diabetes, Team Type 1 is the largest diabetes and sports organization in the world.

Our mission is to show the world that with proper health, exercise and equal access to medicine, anyone with diabetes can achieve their dreams.As the world’s largest diabetes and sports organization we strive to dispel the stigma that people with diabetes can’t.

WE CAN! WE DO!

Global Ambassador Scholarship Program
Team Type 1 funds 100 college scholarships annually of up to $10,000 to help young, talented athletes with Type 1 Diabetes off-set the cost of diabetes care so they can focus on what matters…their health and their college education. 

Awards recognize athletes who demonstrate an ability to balance both academic and sporting commitments, promote healthy living with successful diabetes management through exercise, and who serve as inspirational role models in the T1D community.

Auction For Life- How you can attend this years virtual event coming soon
The Auction for Life (AFL) is Team Type 1’s signature event, gathering Atlanta’s philanthropic leaders in support of TT1’s college scholarship.  Covid-19 has impacted the ability to conduct live fundraising but it is still very important; people with T1D are in a high-risk category with Covid-19.

Partnership Opportunities:
Team Type 1 needs community philanthropists to continue providing support to people thriving with T1 Diabetes.  We can create a custom partnership, or you can make a donation and help the Team Type 1 Foundation in its mission.

WE PROVE WHAT’S POSSIBLE.
