About National Teams

National Teams provide an opportunity for companies and organizations that have multiple locations to rally and connect their employees across the nation around a common purpose. The Breakthrough T1D™ Ride is designed to help companies positively impact employee health and well-being while uniting them to raise funds to end type 1 diabetes. To become a National Team, companies or organizations need to set collective fundraising goals surpassing $50,000, with participation from multiple locations. As teams surpass this minimum, they unlock numerous additional benefits, showcasing the limitless potential impact they can make.

Inspiring Health & Wellness

With the Breakthrough T1D Ride, your company or organization will have the opportunity set and achieve fitness and mileage related goals as a part of their participation. Participants can sync their account to Strava or enter miles from their personal fitness tracking device. Companies can also set fitness goals and track progress to achieving them, making it an excellent tie-in or add on to a health and wellness program.

Part of a Team

As a National Breakthrough T1D Ride team, you'll receive support from your local Breakthrough T1D staff and a dedicated Breakthrough T1D National Partner. Your National Partner will assist in setting a company-wide goal, devising fundraising strategies, and providing continuous support to ensure success. With one consistent point of contact, they'll streamline communication across all sites, consolidating your company's teams and delivering progress reports to track your overarching impact.
