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!
