About this Event

2nd Annual Be the One Trail Running Festival

Where and When

This event will take place at Remich Park in beautiful Littleton, New Hampshire, which was recently named a “Top Ten Dream Town” by Outside magazine, on Saturday September 28th. Registration starts at 11am. Races start at 12:30pm. The trail running will take place on the Parker Mountain Trail network directly behind Remich Park. Late September in Northern New Hampshire is popping with brilliant Fall Foliage red, orange, and yellow colors and downtown Littleton will be vibrant and alive with Schilling’s Beer Company’s celebration of Octoberfest all weekend located in the up and coming River District of Littleton, perhaps a visit to Chutter’s (home to the Worlds Largest Candy Counter), or take in one of the many restaurants, Main St. specialty shops, or many cultural diversions Littleton has to offer in fall.

What

Join us in this unique event celebrating all things trail running/walking on the picturesque Parker Mountain Trails. The 10k and 5k courses will allow you to enjoy the beauty of the forest as you run through stands of oak and maple groves and many varieties of different pine and birch trees. You will run alongside small creeks and ponds and pass many glacial boulders and rock formations dating back 10,000 years ago. Several sections of the trail also afford fantastic views of the Ammonoosuc River Valley, the White Mountains including the Franconia and Presidential ranges, and the picturesque town of Littleton. These 26 miles of hand-built and community managed trails are home to many who enjoy the adventures of not only trail running, but mountain biking, hiking, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, and winter fat biking as well.

Why

The Second Annual “Be the One Trail Running Festival” is an important fundraising event dedicated to Type 1 Diabetes education, awareness, and support. Proceeds from this event will be donated directly to the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth-Hitchcock (CHaD) Endocrinology Department and to the American Diabetes Association’s Camp Carefree Type 1 Diabetes Summer Camp scholarship fund.

Type 1 diabetes, (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin, the hormone that controls blood-sugar levels. T1D develops when the insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells are mistakenly destroyed by the body’s immune system. Kids with T1D continuously and carefully balance insulin intake with eating, exercise and other activities, 24/7. They constantly measure their blood-sugar levels through multiple finger pricks throughout the day or by wearing a continuous glucose monitor. They also inject themselves several times a day with life-saving synthetic insulin or wear an insulin pump. Even with a strict regimen and constant management, kids with T1D may still experience dangerously high or low blood-glucose levels that can be life threatening. T1D is a lifelong management of managing those highs and lows.

Proceeds will go the ChaD Pediatric Endocrinology team who help support, train, and assist children and families develop lifelong management tools by providing their professional expertise, educational materials, support groups, and on-going training. With 40,000 new cases every year in this country, a Type 1 Diabetes diagnosis happens quickly and often without warning. The child and family must quickly adapt and experience a steep learning curve in those first few days in the hospital. The CHaD Pediatric endocrinology team helps children and families get through that initial shock with support, education, and by helping establish daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly routines for that family. Your donations and monetary support will go directly to help defray the increasing costs of educational materials, support, and training needed upon first diagnosis.

And proceeds will also go to form a scholarship for one child to attend Camp Carefree at Merrymeeting Lake in New Durham, NH. Camp Carefree is a vibrant residential camp for children with Type 1 diabetes. Emphasis is on creating a warm atmosphere of caring and cooperation and to provide a fun filled, healthy, and educational experience for the campers that will help them to develop and maintain active, healthy lifestyles and is supported by the American Diabetes Association. Their mission is to provide a fun-filled, educational camping experience for children with Type 1 diabetes that will help them to develop and maintain active, healthy lifestyles. Camp Carefree's goal is to allow the campers to feel at ease and "accepted" in a community where having diabetes is the rule, not the exception. The campers learn to understand diabetes and the process of self-management under continuous skilled medical supervision.

There is no cure for Type 1 Diabetes, but your contribution and support to CHaD and the ADA, will help these kids get one step closer to leading normal, productive, healthy, and full lives through the work, guidance, and support that CHaD endocrinology teams and the ADA provide to each and every child.
