TeamWILD: We Inspire Life with Diabetes, is a new company created to support people with type 1 and type 2 diabetes in becoming healthy through integrated, internet-based education in diabetes and exercise. TeamWILD provides 12, 14, 16 and 18 week training plans in walking, running, triathlon and cycling that integrate expert athletic coaching with expert diabetes and nutrition coaching, along with mental skills coaching.
TeamWILD athletes can live anywhere in the world as long as they have internet access and the desire to get out and move. Once TeamWILD participants make the mental and physical shift to thinking of themselves as healthy empowered athletes, they need healthy options to support their new lifestyle. TeamWILD is excited to be able to promote Zevia Natural Soda as a healthy option and fun treat.
"Zevia was created to provide a healthier option for soda drinkers, by offering zero calorie sodas with no artificial sweeteners. We're committed to helping people take control of their own health, and that's why we are so excited to be partnering with TeamWILD. Being healthy is within all of our reach, and it's the small lifestyle changes that we all make that ultimately result in a better quality of life. By choosing Zevia, or training in running, walking, triathlon or cycling, we can minimize the impact that diabetes has upon our lives." Paddy Spence, Chief Executive Officer, Zevia LLC.
TeamWILD Director Mari Ruddy commented about the exciting new partnership with Zevia, "TeamWILD exists to empower people with diabetes to become athletes as a strategy for improving their health. And on the journey to becoming an athlete with diabetes, one needs treats to celebrate accomplishments. Zevia is a zero calorie soda with no artificial sweeteners, and best of all Zevia is fun and tasty! And that's why TeamWILD is excited to partner with Zevia: to bring more fun and joy to all who seek to have a healthy and happy life, even living with diabetes. Thank you Zevia for providing such an awesome fun beverage for all of us!"
This year, expect to see TeamWILD and Zevia at all 91 Tour de Cure rides for the American Diabetes Association. Both TeamWILD and Zevia are supporters of the Tour de Cure cycling events. TeamWILD is the official training partner of the Tour de Cure, providing training to all 6,000 Red Riders, or cyclists with diabetes at the Tour de Cure.
Mari Ruddy, Director of TeamWILD is the founder of the Red Rider program, and she wanted cyclists with diabetes to have the training and education they deserve in order to have a very successful cycling experience. Thus she created TeamWILD to meet that need.
Mari introduced the Tour de Cure to Zevia Natural Soda and as a result, every Tour de Cure rider nationwide will get to experience the yummy goodness of the more than 15 fabulous flavors of Zevia Natural Soda, as Zevia is now a promotional beverage sponsor of the Tour de Cure of the American Diabetes Association.
