JDRF House ParT1D for a Cure

WOW – we are blown away! Thank you SO much Peel/Halton Region for joining the very first JDRF House ParT1D for a Cure!

We called, you answered! You joined us, as well as thousands of people across Canada to raise over $2 Million to help us accelerate the pace of diabetes research. We know it has not been an easy few months for the T1D community, friends, and allies. Thank you for your commitment, passion, and partnership! 

You made this event a success, you got loud, creative and did some truly incredible fundraising. You encouraged your families, friends and communities to support and get involved and for that, we thank you. The challenges you came up with were instrumental in making the House ParT1D for a Cure the huge success it was.

It is an honor to work with you, your families, friends and partners of JDRF in such uncertain time.

From the team here at JDRF Peel/ Halton, we cannot thank you enough. Together we are changing lives.


Thank you to our local sponsors
