This race will push your team to reach for more with multiple legs.

    My son has Type 1 and would like to participate, previously I as his mother would accompany him but this year he has asked if his older sister can come with him. First, can he bring his non-T1D sister to participate with him? And second, is this an event I can drop them off at for the day or does a parent need to stay with them? They are 10 and 12 years old.

    Thanks!

      Hi Lacey,
      Thanks for inquiring. I’d say this option is open to you but would ask that you get him to write out his insulin ratio’s on a card to keep in his BG kit. If you can get him to do a double check on having all his diabetes gear when dropping off with one of our team members that would be great!
      His sister is absolutely welcome. You can also let him be on a team without you if he is comfortable with you staying around as a volunteer. Look forward to having you at our Ultimate Amazing Race.

    Thanks,

    We are registered for this race November 18 at the Children’s Hospital. Do you know if there will be additional parking available for the event day? Parking at the hospital is limited at best so I’m wondering if there will be flagmen or some plan for letting people know where to park. Thanks
