Cure Diabetes Ignorance!
In 2014, Team Diabadass made history as the first diabetic relay team in the longest single-state relay run in the US, the Capital to Coast Relay.
We did it AGAIN in 2015.
And in 2016, we’re doing it AGAIN, running 223 miles, day and night, from Austin to Corpus Christi on the Gulf Coast. Type 1s and Type 2s. And all athletes.
7-minute milers. 15-minute walk/runners. Because it’s all good.
If you thought we were all lazy, unmotivated overeaters, wake up and smell the reality.
This team of Diabadasses blows up all the myths about the people who have diabetes.

You Can Be A Diabadass Too!
Help support the relay team:
We have 6 runners at a time on the road, while the other six rest. Then we alternate. We all chip in money, time and supplies ourselves — so we’d truly appreciate your donations of any amount to help us pay for van rental and gas, plus water, food and other cash expenses during the event.
Curing diabetes ignorance is a worthy goal — but a cure for diabetes would be far better. That’s why any unused donations go to ADA to help fund research into a cure.
Join the VIRTUAL Team Diabadass!
You can play, even if you can’t sign up for the Capital to Coast relay. Just join the virtual Team Diabadass (running not necessarily required!).
