Revolution Ride to Defeat Diabetes, Presented by Sun Life Financial
London Results 2018

Thank you to everyone who took part in the London Revolution Ride to Defeat Diabetes, presented by Sun Life Financial.  We rode, we sweated, had fun and enjoyed a fantastic day with our fellow fundraisers and colleagues.  
There was so much energy and thank you to REV 3K Spin Studio for donating the space and bikes. 
We still have money coming in with grants, corporate donations and company matches.

We had rides away from the main site including TD York St call centre, Ecole Secondaire Catholique Monsigneur Bruyere and RBC St Thomas.
You barbequed, baked cakes, sold books and paper sneakers. Challenged other colleagues in their fundraising. Some Harrison Pensa LLP riders will be elves for their end of year celebration!
We welcomed CBRE and London Life to the ride.  Deloitte returned after a 2 year gap. 
We are happy to announce that when all the money is in, the event should make over $40,000 for JDRF and type 1 diabetes research.  
Without you and your fundraising we would not be able to pursue our goal of defeating type 1 diabetes and turning type 1 into type none.

Community Engagement

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.

Mentor Program

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.
