2018 Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF

June 10, 2018

 

THANK YOU!

On behalf of JDRF and the more than 300,000 Canadians living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), thank you for participating in our 2018 Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF. This year, over 40,000 Canadians Walked together in a powerful movement to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). As a result of your generosity, this year’s Walk was a huge success and we are on track to reach our goal of raising $5.4 million!

Thank you for rallying with us to help create a world without T1D. Together, we will continue to fund the brightest minds in T1D research and help turn type one into type none.

Reminder: Walk Pages will remain open until the end of the year - so you can continue to collect pledges and submit them up until December 31, 2018!

Interested in next year’s Walk? Fill out this form and be among the first to find out about the 2019 Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF!
