Many thanks to the amazing families and corporate partners in New Brunswick and PEI Regions who participated in the JDRF House ParT1D for a Cure! Your dedication to T1D research and finding a cure, especially during these challenging times, is deeply appreciated.
We all missed being able to welcome you at our Walk venues this year, but we did still manage to come together as a community in a virtual way, while raising over $2.1 Million for T1D research!
Our heartfelt gratitude goes to our local event partners and sponsors: Armour Transportation Systems, UPS, WestJet and Cavendish Farms! We could not have done it without your support!
If you’d like to re-watch any parts of the JDRF House ParT1D, please visit JDRF Canada’s Youtube page.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you next year!
We would like to thank all the corporate partners who support our Sun Life Ride to Defeat Diabetes across the country, helping JDRF raise critical research funds to cure, better treat, and prevent type 1 diabetes!
JDRF offers vRide opportunities for local corporate partners interested in promoting the team building of their employees, all the while making a difference in the local community.
A third party event 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 BBQ, bake sales, garage sales, car washes and golf tournaments, the only limit is your imagination!

Congratulations to Mike LeBlanc, Rick and the entire team of volunteers and supporters from Mike's Bike Shop for their continued record breaking success!
The 2018 Ride raised over $20,500, which totaled over $200,000 to JDRF and diabetes research for the past ten years!
Please join the 12th edition of the MBS Cyclebetes, a fully supported noncompetitive one day bike ride. Riders depart from Mike's Bike Shop in Dieppe. You can cycle up to 200 km for this event! For more information on this event drop us a line.
Volunteers are needed and appreciated to help out on Ride Day!
Bag of Hope
JDRF is pleased to provide our complimentary Bag of Hope, which contains a variety of educational and reference materials to help newly diagnosed children and their families along the way.
As a special gift, children under the age of 12 will also receive a Rufus bear, The Bear with Diabetes™, designed to help children cope and learn about insulin injections.
Your child has just been diagnosed with diabetes - what do you do now? 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 Mentor Program Volunteers can help.
The Mentor Program can provide much needed emotional support, information about diabetes resources, education about T1D management, research and many more. JDRF's Family Network is free of charge, and we are here to help as long as you need it.
Local Support Groups
There are several support groups that meet throughout New Brunswick to provide peer support to families and individuals living with type 1 diabetes (T1D).
Whether it's the Walk to Cure Diabetes, the Sun Life Ride to Defeat Diabetes, or any other JDRF event that takes place during the year, they all require a considerable amount of volunteer help.
This help can be pre-event, like working on a committee and helping with participant recruitment, sponsorship solicitation, etc, as well as day-of-event duties, including registration, route supervision, kids activities, refreshment area, etc.
Volunteers are the backbone of JDRF and their support is truly appreciated!
