2023 Million Dollar Bike Ride

2023 MBDR Promo

I dare to dream of a day where I don’t constantly have to educate my daughter’s doctors on what HI is, so that she is dealt with and treated on time. A time where we are not consistently hoping and praying that her blood sugars stay up for a day. I dare to dream of a day where she can live a normal child’s life.”
– Michaela, HI Mom

Join Congenital Hyperinsulinism International (CHI) for our tenth year participating in The Million Dollar Bike Ride (MDBR) as Team CHIbra! Join us to reach our goal of $40,000 by June 30, 2023!

What is the Million Dollar Bike Ride?

The Million Dollar Bike Ride (MDBR) is a project of the Orphan Disease Center of the University of Pennsylvania. The MDBR raises money for rare disease research, and over the past nine years, CHI has raised over $663,965 for congenital hyperinsulinism research grants.

Why join Team CHIbra at the MDBR?

CHI is raising funds to address the critical need for research for diagnostic tests to increase timely diagnosis of HI, tools for better management, new treatments, and, one day, a cure. The University of Pennsylvania will match the first $30,000 we raise – so every rider, volunteer, fundraiser, and donor makes a difference.

How has MDBR helped hyperinsulinism research?
