Type 1 Diabetes athlete and sixth-grade student Ryan Maloney (pictured above, left), ran the Carlsbad Half Marathon last weekend in 2 hours 17 minutes in his Newton running shoes. Ryan’s run also raised $1500 for Team Glucomotive, a program of the non-profit Insulindependence, which inspires and supports athletes with diabetes.

Ryan stopped five times during the race to test his blood sugar, and at one point had to eat some extra sugar to keep his blood sugar stable.
