With just one hour, you can help turn Type One into Type None!

What’s on your calendar on Thursday, September 19th?

The JDRF Revolution Ride to Defeat Diabetes is a fun, team-building stationary-biking event that brings together the London community to fund type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. It is a high energy event that invites team spirit and friendly competition among colleagues and the community, with teams of five riding for seven minutes each over the course of 55 minutes. Enjoy camaraderie with colleagues, as well as competition with teammates and other riders. The Ride’s energy is contagious!

Three million Canadians have some form of diabetes, and more than 300,000 Canadians live with T1D. T1D is increasing by 5% annually in Canada – higher than that global average. With your help, we can truly make a difference…and have fun too!

Join the London Revolution Ride for Diabetes Research:
 Victoria Park Bandshell, Tuesday, September 19th, 2017
Ride times: 11 am & 12:15 pm

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.
