About This Activity

Come and be part of Angelica's 100-mile run to raise awareness for Type One Diabetes. Walk/ride/run the first 5K with her as she takes on the 100-mile run around the streets of Tyler to raise awareness for Type One Diabetes. Help her so she can get this done in 24hrs.

Show your support for those you know and love who are living with Type 1 Diabetes by participating in the Tyler Type One Family 5K at Rose Rudman Park, November 5, 2016. We also want to thank Super 1 Foods for being our TOP Sponsor!  Any and all proceeds (after event costs are paid) from the event go directly to supporting those who live in our community with Type 1 Diabetes through Tyler Type One monthly support groups, education classes, and local events. We also promote the warning signs locally and nationally to help save lives since undiagnosed Type 1 can be fatal. 

Last year, Angelica Gonzales, a local Type 1 mom, ran 100 miles in 26 hours to help bring awareness for Type 1 Diabetes. This year, she is attempting to run the 100 miles in 24 hours and wants you to join her starting out her race for the first 5K. This Family 5K Fun Run/Walk/Ride is a great way to show your support for those living with Type 1 Diabetes, raise awareness and cheer Angelica on with her 100-mile run. You don't want to miss it! Let's show our community unity for Type 1 Diabetes.
