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!

Get started with your fundraising event…
JDRF is pleased to provide our complimentary Bag of Hope to our newly diagnosed families, containing a variety of educational and reference materials that will help you along the way.
As a special gift, children under the age of 12 will also receive a Rufus or Ruby, The Bear with Diabetes™, designed to help children cope and learn about insulin injections.
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 Family Network of Volunteers can help!
Through the Family Network, families touched by diabetes can be connected with a trained mentor, receive much needed emotional support and information about diabetes resources, as well as education about what they can do to help find a cure.
JDRF’s Family Network is made up of regular families dealing with similar struggles. It is an invaluable support network to those living with T1D.
Please check us out on Facebook.
Whether it's the Walk to Cure 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, working on one of many committees involving recruitment of participants, solicitation of sponsorships for items and services, or day-of-event duties such as registration, route supervision, kids activities, barbecue/refreshment area, etc.
For information on the many volunteer opportunities available, please contact Tracey Raycroft at 705.792.4833 or email@example.com.
Volunteers are the backbone of JDRF and their support is truly appreciated!
