For a Piece of Cake and World Diabetes Day

For a Piece of Cake and World Diabetes Day

On this World Diabetes Day, we would like to share how Chiara Ricciardi and Riccardo Rocchi bicycled almost 11,000 miles from Cesena, Italy to Singapore in their effort called For a Piece of Cake. Chiara has type 1 diabetes and, while their ride seems like a difficult endeavor to any of us, Chiara’s added health obstacle caused her to depend on the rugged and reliable Crēdo ProMed™ container strapped to her bike storing her insulin for a year, 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 45/50 units per day to 20/30 units!

We are proud to have supported this effort of endurance and diabetes awareness. Congratulations to the For a Piece of Cake duo!
