The Cause 
     Pete and Nolan's fathers are both type I diabetics, and they have seen the challenges their fathers face in order to maintain life on a daily basis. Type 1 diabetes is a genetic, lifelong (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood. Peter and Nolan's fathers have had to live their entire lives manually adjusting their sugar levels by taking insulin by syringe or pump. If left untreated for even one day, they could go into a seizure or diabetic coma resulting in death within hours. 
      Seeing the challenge of their father lives on a daily basis, just to stay alive, Peter and Nolan have created their own challenge; to raise money for the cure. 

All money raised went directly to the American Diabetes Association.
