14th November 2017 is World Diabetes Day and we would like to share how Chiara Ricciardi and Riccardo Rocchi cycled 11,000 miles from Cesena, Italy to Singapore to raise awareness of Diabetes.
Chiara has type 1 diabetes and the ride, which was a huge challenge, was potentially life threatening unless she could keep her insulin cool and in good condition. She chose the rugged, reliable Crēdo ProMed™ container strapped to her bike storing her insulin for the journey, which was a lifeline to her goal.
Chiara noted that during the trip, she was only using 60% of the daily amount of insulin she was injecting before leaving Italy. The regular cycling drastically reduced from 45 to 50 units per day to 20 to 30 units! We are proud to have supported this effort of endurance and diabetes awareness.
Congratulations to the For a Piece of Cake duo from all at Peli BioThermal
