Kids for a Cure Lobby Day 2018

Be part of Team JDRF. Help us get loud about type 1 diabetes.

We’re in search of two dozen children from across Canada to join Team JDRF in Ottawa this October. If you’re between the ages of 4-18, live with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and have a story to tell, we need you.

In 2018, we’ll be saying thank you for the government’s multi-year commitment to fund type 1 diabetes research through the $30 million Partnership to Defeat Diabetes established last year. Your stories help Canada’s decision-makers understand the daily challenges you face in living with diabetes, bringing home the importance of accelerating progress towards a cure, developing new treatment options and improving access to new diabetes drugs and devices.

JDRF will cover the costs of airfare, accommodation, meals and ground transportation for those applicants selected as Kids for a Cure 2018 delegates and one parent or guardian.

Event Date: October 28-30th, 2018
Location: Parliament Hill, Ottawa
Eligibility: Aged 4-18 on October 30th
Application Deadline: Tuesday, July 31st, 2018 by MIDNIGHT EDT
