Par For The Cure! – Presented by Type One
1st Annual Type One Golf Tourney – September 15, 2021 – Crosswinds Golf Club, Plymouth, MA – Funds Raised Support Type 1 Diabetes Research and Assist Those Living With The Disease
Type One invites you to join us for our 1st annual Par For The Cure! This inaugural event will be held at Crosswinds Golf Club in Plymouth, MA on Wednesday, September 15, 2021.
Over the past decade, while bringing thousands of friends and families together, Type One has made an incredible impact toward their mission of funding research to cure type 1 diabetes (T1D) and supporting those in need of help to manage their disease, by holding its Renegade Run Obstacle Course Race. After 10 years, and much deliberation due to coronavirus, we decided for the health and safety of our greater community, that we would change it up this year and bring people together at this beautiful golf course. Registration opens at 11:00 AM with a scramble shotgun start at 1:00 PM, immediately followed by an appetizer and drink reception at 6:00 PM.
Type One was founded in 2012 by a group of South Shore residents to support their friend Tyson Sunnerberg, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, when he was 21 years old. On November 25, 2012, the first ever Renegade Run Obstacle Course Race was held raising awareness and funds toward a cure.
Type One Cares – Charity
The purpose of Par For The Cure! is to have fun, stay motivated and to connect with each other as we continue to raise awareness and funds toward a cure for type 1 diabetes (T1D). 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.
To date, Type One has generated over one hundred thousand dollars to support the Faustman Lab at MGH, which is run by Dr. Denise Faustman, director of the Immunobiology Laboratory at MGH, and is focused on discovering and developing new treatments for type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases. Dr. Faustman is currently leading a human clinical trial program testing the efficacy of the BCG (bacille Calmette-Guerin) vaccine for reversal of long-term type 1 diabetes.
When you engage in a sponsorship for Type One, you demonstrate the commitment to our mission. Without your generous support our event would not be possible. Thank you for helping to provide a platform for friends and families to band together in honor of their loved ones living with T1D and for our community to join in our efforts to raise awareness and funds for research toward the cure.
Crosswinds offers a unique blend of rolling fairways and large gently undulating greens. Challenging yet fun and perfect for golfers of all abilities, this course takes advantage of the natural topography, offering dramatic elevation changes, panoramic views and comfortable spacing between holes for a resort-style atmosphere!
Type One, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, recognizes a world free of type 1 diabetes (T1D) and is dedicated to that future by raising public awareness and funds toward a cure through research. “Type One Cares” is a campaign dedicated to building a community to assist those affected by T1D with support, education and endowment, so they can live a powerful life beyond the diagnosis. Renegade Run Obstacle Course Race is a highly successful fundraising event that caters to fitness enthusiasts of all levels and focuses on camaraderie, goodwill and celebration of life. We support the life changing research of the Faustman Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital who is leading the way toward a cure for T1D.
