Hamilton - June 14, 2015

The 2015 TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes in Hamilton was once again a great success, and we welcomed over 1,200 walkers at Pier 4 Park, including many new teams who participated with us for the first time.

If anyone is still fundraising over the summer months for their walk team, please let us know, the online fundraising system is still accepting donations until December 31 to add to your team total!

Contact Anne at 1.866.602.6662 if you have additional funds to send in.

Brantford - June 28, 2015

Despite a very rainy weekend, the sun came out briefly while the 2015 Brantford Walk took place at Waterworks Park!! We thank the many walkers who braved what did not look to be good weather and still came out to participate and help raise over $43,000 for JDRF.

We would like to thank the many families who were not deterred by the weather, and came out to support the walk for the first time, as well as our new Corporate Sponsor, Maple Lodge Farms, who generously donated the product for and the staff to cook, our post event BBQ.

Again, call Anne Martin at the JDRF Office - 1.866.602.6662 or e mail Anne at amartin@jdrf.ca if you still have additional funds to add to your walk total, or if you are still holding fundraising events for the Brantford Walk.

Third Party Events

What is a third party event? It is a fundraising event for JDRF, organized independently by an outside (third) party.

If your company, club, or group is interested in helping raise funds for JDRF, there are many ways to do so. From raffles to barbecues, bake sales, garage sales, car washes, and golf tournaments, the only limit is your imagination!

If you wish to host a third party event in support of JDRF, or are interested in more information, please contact Anne Martin at 905.664.1432/1.866.602.6662 or amartin@jdrf.ca.
