ROAD iD and Team Novo Nordisk Team Up to Promote Active Lifestyles
December 21, 2020
Team Novo Nordisk, All T1D Athletes, Ride with ROAD iD
ROAD iD, leading manufacturer of wearable ID products and Team Novo Nordisk, the world’s first all-diabetes professional cycling team, announce a partnership that will bring the two organizations together around a shared goal to promote active, healthy lifestyles. All of Team Novo Nordisk’s athletes compete with type 1 diabetes and its mission is to inspire, educate, and empower everyone affected by the condition.
ROAD iD makes wearable identification for people on the go. Should the need arise, their ID products communicate who you are, who to contact, and the medical information necessary to ensure proper care is received. Countless stories and testimonials from customers who have used the customizable wrist, necklace, and shoe IDs over the years are a testament to the power of wearing ID, with many customers citing they might not be alive today had it not been for their ROAD iD.
“We are thrilled to partner with Team Novo Nordisk to promote ROAD iD’s mission of safety,” said Edward Wimmer, CEO of Road ID. “Our partnership with TNN is an exciting and unique opportunity to support an amazing team of athletes, promote the value of active lifestyles, and share the life-saving story of ROAD iD.”
“When people are diagnosed with diabetes, many think they can no longer live life in the same way. Since the team’s inception, our goal is to help people with diabetes believe they can still chase their dreams,” said Team Novo Nordisk CEO and Co-Founder Phil Southerland. “This partnership feels very synergistic because we both strongly share the vision to get people active. Combined with the fact that many of our riders already wear medical ID bracelets as they train and race with type 1 diabetes, this partnership serves as another tool to help the diabetes community exercise safely.”
2021 marks Team Novo Nordisk’s ninth season racing as part of the International Cycling Union (UCI) ProSeries, which takes them to numerous countries around the world in Europe, USA, Africa, and Asia as they race to change diabetes. Team Novo Nordisk has more than three dozen athletes and ambassadors from 18 different countries within its pipeline.
By combining the strengths and expertise of the two organizations, this partnership will focus on high-value and engaging digital content that empowers people to be safe when doing the sports and activities that they love.
