2019 JD Camp

We would like to send a sincere thank you to the Rotaract Club from Western University for hosting 18 families at our annual JD Camp for fun and learning!!

80 family members enjoyed a Medieval Times themed weekend full of fun activities, from making shields, dragons and towers,  to delicious meals, campfires and movies!! The children made many new friends who understand what they are going through, and parents had a shoulder to lean on and learn from. All in all, it was an effective and meaningful way to bring our community together, supporting both the mental and physical health of the families. 

 


 

Join us for the Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF and raise funds for vital and life-changing type 1 diabetes (T1D) research! Be part of a collective rally that brings together thousands of people whose lives are touched by T1D and want to change the face of the disease forever.

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
 

Newly Diagnosed?

If you have been newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes (T1D), you're not alone. JDRF is here to answer your questions and help you manage the changes diabetes brings to your life. 

 

Bag of Hope

JDRF is pleased to provide our complimentary Bag of Hope which contains a variety of educational and reference materials that will help you along the way. As a special gift, children will also receive Rufus, the Bear with Diabetes, designed to help children cope and learn about insulin injections.
 For more information, please contact Melissa Power at mpower@jdrf.ca.

 

Youth Council

This is a group of 13 to 18 year-olds who are excited about meeting new people, developing leadership skills, and having fun! They are young, energetic, and passionate about making a difference. The JDRF London Youth Council wants to hear from you! 
For more information, please contact Melissa Power at mpower@jdrf.ca.

 

Youth Ambassadors

The JDRF Youth Ambassador program supports young people with T1D to engage their communities and raise awareness about T1D. If you know a passionate youth who lives with T1D, is committed to the mission of JDRF, and would like to make some positive noise about T1D, contact Melissa Power at mpower@jdrf.ca for more details on the program.

 

School Walk Program

Too often parents with children who live with T1D find their schools are not sufficiently informed about diabetes and its complications.
Encouraging a Kids Walk to Cure Diabetes to be held at your child’s school can assist in building the much needed awareness within the student body and teachers, and provide a safe learning environment for students with diabetes.
The School Walk is a fun-filled day for teachers, volunteers, and children, and is a great way to raise funds for JDRF.
Register your school today.

For more information, please contact Melissa Power at mpower@jdrf.ca


Mentor Program

Your child/teen or maybe yourself has been newly diagnosed with T1D & you're feeling overwhelmed & alone. You aren't alone & JDRF can help by matching you with a mentor; trained volunteers who understand what you are going through & can connect you with helpful resources in your area.

For more information contact Melissa Power at mpower@jdrf.ca
