Tyler Type One Diabetes Foundation Endurance
Saturday, October 29th, 2011
We will have several very large inflatable obstacle courses, a 24ft. rock climbing wall, bungee runs, pedestal jousting, bouncy boxing, and bounce houses for the little ones. In addition to the challenges and prizes, there will be concession stands with delicious food, and concerts in the Bergfeld Park amphitheater with Daves Highway back again this year and local Dustin Becker. We also have Drew Holder coming to speak just before Daves Highway hits the stage around noon. Drew is a former Houston Astros pro baseball player that also has Type 1 Diabetes. He is an inspiration!
There is even a 5K-15K Trail Run benefiting Tyler Type One early in the morning on the same day as our event to add another dimension to this Endurance Challenge. It is being sponsored by Steel Sports and Calvary Baptist Church at Tyler State Park at 8 AM (our event doesn't begin until 10 AM). You can sign up at www.steelsports.net for the Hot Potato Trot Trail Run at Tyler State Park. After the trail run is over we are encouraging all the participants to come on over to the Endurance Challenge for food, prizes and family fun. Proceeds from the Hot Potato Trot will benefit the Tyler Type One Endurance Challenge.
And finally, there is one more special feature to this event that will appeal to the Type 1 and Type 2 community. We have arranged for a traveling exhibit on the Discovery of Insulin from the New York Historical Society. Trinity Mother Frances is sponsoring this exhibit. We will have a tent set up with this exhibit showing the the discovery of insulin and how it has progressed over the past 90 years to provide the life support our children need daily. This will ad a very special educational aspect to this event.
