Type One Cares – Charity
We are committed to expanding and enhancing our support for countless families and individuals living with type 1 diabetes throughout the South Shore of Massachusetts community by providing essential funding for research for a cure for type 1 diabetes while also helping to ensure that those living with the disease have the support and resources they need to survive, strive and achieve their dreams. We promote long-term lifestyle changes for members through exercise and nutrition for their all-around well-being by offering unique features, services, and amenities.
For individuals living with diabetes, the benefits of exercise can’t be overstated. Exercise helps control weight, lower blood pressure, lower harmful LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, raise healthy HDL cholesterol, strengthen muscles and bones, reduce anxiety, and improve your general well-being. There are added benefits for people with diabetes – exercise lowers blood glucose levels and boosts the body’s sensitivity to insulin, countering insulin resistance. We offer aerobic and anaerobic exercise, strength and flexibility training, cardio exercise, including running, jogging or brisk walking that provide health benefits for those who participate in them.
Research for A Cure
We support the life changing research of the Faustman Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital as they lead the way toward a cure for type 1 diabetes.
Diabetes Management and Treatment Assistance
Diabetes management and treatment is expensive. New onset patients spend about $1,400 on education and appointment fees. Pump Therapy can create better control but can cost up to $1,200 each month. Insulin for children can cost about $300 a month. Testing six to eight times a day is normal, and all those test strips add up to about $300 a month. The cost can be debilitating for many families and going without insulin is not an option. We provide qualifying recipients with assistance for these costs.
T1D Camp for a Child
We’ve partnered with the Barton Center for Diabetes Education, one of the largest, independent camping and educational programs in the country dedicated to children who live with diabetes and the people who care for them. We provide scholarships for local children living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) to attend a week of residential camp in the summer.
We provide ten $1,000 scholarships to graduating high school seniors from around the South Shore community to support advanced studies at any college, university, or technical institution.
Type One Fitness
Type One Fitness is a boutique fitness center with a unique focus on diabetes wellness that is open to everyone. Delivering life-changing results in health and fitness for individuals and families throughout the South Shore, Type One Fitness offers experienced and credentialed fitness trainers, nutritionists, state of the art equipment and studios, comprehensive workshops and support for those living with diabetes. Essentially, all-around well-being is enhanced through unique features, services, and amenities. We provide financial aid to those requiring assistance for memberships and scholarships for individuals living with type 1 diabetes.

Registration is open and sponsor opportunities are available!

Your registration and sponsorship will support our Type One Cares campaign, an amazing charity making significant strides to assist those living with T1D, while continuing to fund Dr. Faustman’s efforts to advance research toward a cure for the disease.
