The Story

Create a CrowdRise fundraising page to raise funds for congenital hyperinsulinism research for better treatment and cures! Read our story and learn how below:

Congenital Hyperinsulinism (HI) is a disease causing dangerously low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia) due to the overproduction of insulin. Every year HI babies suffer permanent brain damage or death due to the effects of low blood sugars. HI’s consequences are preventable; tragically, HI is often overlooked, misdiagnosed, or even when detected, mistreated. Families with HI babies need on-going support as treatment is complicated, constant, and prolonged – many patients will battle hypoglycemia their entire lives.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism International (CHI) is the leading 501 c(3) nonprofit dedicated to improving the lives of people living with HI all over the world. CHI supports research for better treatments and a cure, raises awareness of HI and advocates for early HI detection and improved care, and supports those with HI and their families.

This year, our CrowdRise research theme is #StopTheLows! The funds you raise will be added to the funds raised through the Million Dollar Bike Ride at the University of Pennsylvania which will take place May 20, 2017 in Philadelphia. The University will MATCH EVERY DOLLAR WE RAISE - through both our CrowdRise AND the actual bike ride up to the first $50,000 for a total of $100,000! Donate by May 20 to get the match!

Set up your own fundraising team, and help #StopTheLows from wherever you are in the world! Host an event, a ride – or just fundraise.  Any way you do it,  you  are "Raring To Go for CHI!" 

Click "Set Up Your Fundraiser" to create your own team or join an existing one - click "Donate to a Fundraiser" to donate to an existing team.

So many of you participated in our #StopTheLows campaign - if you already have a #StopTheLows photo, we encourage you to use it! If you would like us to create a #StopTheLows photo for you, or have any other questions in setting up your team, please email jpelle@congenitalhi.org.
