Hamilton - June 8, 2014

We are looking to celebrate 20 years of Walking in Hamilton on Sunday June 8, 2014!

We have made great strides towards finding a cure for diabetes over the years, but we still need YOUR support

We hope to see all those families and companies who have walked with us over the years, the many new families we have met, and especially those we may not have seen for a while, we invite you all to come and join us to celebrate at Pier 4 Park.  Registration is now open, so please register today, and set your fundraising goal for 2014, and help us to make Type 1 Type None!

Further details of what we hope will be our most exciting Walk ever, will be updated shortly.

Brantford - June 22, 2014

Plans are also underway for the 2014 TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes in Brantford, each year we work with a very dedicated volunteer committee, who make this community event so successful.


Niagara Region (Welland) - September 21, 2014

Registration is also open already for the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes in the Niagara Region, held each year at beautiful Merritt Island, Welland. Our volunteer committee will be getting together shortly to start planning this Fall 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.
