Walk to Cure Diabetes
Each year, more than 15,000 children and 15,000 adults - approximately 80 people per day - are diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D) in the U.S. It comes on suddenly, causes dependence on injected or pumped insulin for life, and carries the constant threat of devastating complications. JDRF is the leading global organization focused on T1D research. Driven by passionate, grassroots volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease, JDRF is the largest charitable supporter of T1D research.
The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes draws people together in a healthy activity for a worthy goal, raising money to improve the lives of all people affected by T1D
by accelerating progress on the most promising opportunities for curing, better treating, and preventing T1D. The Walk is fun for families and builds camaraderie among company employees. Above all, it's an event you will feel good about being a part of! Your personal contribution and fundraising efforts support JDRF-funded research that will help those living with the disease to look forward to longer, healthier lives.
