Please support Raring to Go for CHI, the Congenital Hyperinsulinism International team, as we participate in the fifth annual Million Dollar Bike Ride! We are raising money for research leading to better treatments and cures for congenital hyperinsulinism.
About Congenital Hyperinsulinism
Congenital hyperinsulinism (HI) is the most frequent cause of severe, persistent hypoglycemia in newborn babies and children. With early treatment and aggressive prevention of hypoglycemia, brain damage can be prevented. However, brain damage can occur in children with HI if their condition is not recognized or if treatment is ineffective in the prevention of hypoglycemia. For more information, visit http://congenitalhi.org/ .
Get Involved!
This is an exciting time for the HI community because of the momentum around research for better detection, prevention, and treatment. Our participation in the Million Dollar Bike Ride in years past has led to:

2017 Grant Recipient: Dr. Diva De León-Crutchlow of the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania for a pilot study of the bihormonal bionic pancreas for the treatment of diabetes post-pancreatectomy in children with congenital hyperinsulinism

2016 Grant Recipient: Dr. Changhong Li of Children's Hospital of Philadelphia for drug development for a treatment for glutamate dehydrogenase hyperinsulinism

2015 Grant Recipient: Mark Dunne, BSc, PhD, of the University of Manchester, for research towards precision medicine in treatment of congenital hyperinsulinism in infancy

2014 Grant Recipient: Dr. Diva De León-Crutchlow for a pilot study of the efficacy and safety of sirolimus in the treatment of congenital hyperinsulinism

Our efforts will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the University of Pennsylvania Penn Medicine Orphan Disease Center. This money will then be awarded as a research grant, so your contribution will go directly toward research for this important cause.

How can you be a part of this endeavor? There are two great options!
