November is Diabetes Awareness Month
What better way to celebrate than hosting a fundraising event
with family, friends or colleagues.
There is no limit to the different ways that you can personally help raise funds and awareness in support of diabetes research.
JDRF is here to help you with your event plans and support you in any way we can.
Want to talk to someone about getting started?
Thank you for all of your support at the 2016 TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes! We had an amazing day - beautiful weather, inspiring community, and lots of fun. Thank you for making it an incredible day and we look forward to seeing you next year!
Because of people like you, this year's Walk has already raised over $300,000, but the fundraising doesn't stop here! You can still collect donations online or send them to our office with an accompanying pledge form until the end of the year.
Thank you for walking with us as we turn Type 1 into Type None!
Thank you to our National Sponsors:
Would meeting other adults with T1D and sharing common experiences be of interest to you?
