The 5th Annual Run Against Type 1 Diabetes

Come and join us to support some really great kids here in the Gila Valley who are winning the struggle against Type 1 Diabetes. This event is hosted by the Gila Valley Diabetes Coalition and MGRMC Foundation.

We will have a 1 mile fun run at 8:00AM and a chip timed 5K race starting at 8:30AM.

There will be Rock and Roll Music all along the course, and medals for the winners. We invite you to dress up in your favorite rock star costume and come participate in the best local run of the year.  All money raised stays here in our community and goes directly towards the cost of sending kids to diabetes camp this summer.

Please register before Februray 14th to receive a T-Shirt. Don't want to participate? Just buy a T-shirt to contribute!

If you are interested in becoming a corporate sponsor and have your logo printed on our T-Shirts please send an email to [email protected]
