Walk your way!
JDRF London is proud to host 4 Walk sites.
Pick a date and location that suits you:
JDRF is pleased to provide our complimentary Bag of Hope to our newly diagnosed families, containing a variety of educational and reference materials that will help you along the way.
As a special gift, children under the age of 12 will also receive a Rufus or Ruby, The Bear with Diabetes™, designed to help children cope and learn about insulin injections.
When a loved one is diagnosed with diabetes, it can be a traumatic and stressful time. Fear, sadness, anger, and confusion about how to manage the disease can leave families feeling alone and overwhelmed.
You are not alone. JDRF’s Family Network of Volunteers can help!
Through the Family Network, families touched by diabetes can be connected with a trained mentor, receive much needed emotional support and information about diabetes resources, as well as education about what they can do to help find a cure.
JDRF’s Family Network is made up of regular families dealing with similar struggles. It is an invaluable support network to those living with T1D.

Preston's Big Game
Diagnosed with T1D at age 9, Preston's life changed dramatically.
He was entering a whole new world filled with fear and uncertainty.
Preston found comfort and inspiration in the art and story of
Aaron Bengall's book Feel The Beat.
Preston decided to write his own book with the aim of raising awareness about the symptoms, biology, and daily procedures involved with T1D.
Over half of the proceeds of his book goes toward fighting T1D.
