T1D 4x4x48 Ultramarathon
A 4x4x48 is a run pioneered by ultra-marathoner, David Goggins. Athletes run 4 miles every 4 hours over the course of a 48 hour period. That means twelve - 4 mile runs in 2 days for a total of 48 miles. Our 4th Annual T1D 4x4x48 is in support of finding a cure for Type 1 Diabetes and raising awareness for those living with this auto-immune disease. In the past 3 years we have raised over $170,000 to support cure-based research through DRIFCan, an organization based in Edmonton, Alberta that is directly funding researcher Dr. James Shapiro. Learn more about their mission at www.drifcan.com.

Aubree Holtvogt was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2018 at the age of 4. Her dad, Jason wanted to challenge himself in 2021 to increase his personal fitness but he also wanted to do something to acknowledge the life-long struggle that his daughter and those living with T1D have to endure until a cure is found. It is a mental grind that they do not get a break from, 24 hours a day 7 days a week. This is the inspiration behind the our annual T1D 4x4x48 - to raise awareness, to raise funds for critical research and to raise up the community of T1Ds and their supporters.
