Team Glut 1

Our Mission

The Glut1 Deficiency Foundation and Team Glut1 is honored to participate in the Million Dollar Bike Ride, an annual awareness and fundraising event from the Penn Medicine Orphan Disease Center (ODC).

It is an amazing opportunity for participating rare disease teams to raise funds for pilot research grants for their diseases and to have those funds matched dollar for dollar by the ODC. All donations through the Team Glut1 - Million Dollar Bike Ride campaign will be dedicated to this research grant program.

Typically, this event brings over 750 cyclists and volunteers to Penn's campus to ride either 13, 34, or 72 miles across the Greater Philadelphia region.

Team Glut1 started as Miles for Millie in 2016, a project from the Meisner family, who lives in the Philadelphia area, in support of their daughter, Millie. They helped secure funding of $136,000 for research grants through their participation, and in 2020 they joined forces with the Glut1 Deficiency Foundation to create Team Glut1 so that the whole Glut1 community could take part in this incredible opportunity to drive research progress and double our impact.
