On behalf of JDRF and the more than 300,000 Canadians living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), we want to thank you! Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2017 TELUS JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes. Last 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! 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.

Outreach Family Events



A Family Fun event is usually the first point of contact with JDRF for newly-diagnosed families. Remember that feeling of being welcomed and finding others who understood what you were going through? 

These events can't happen without the help of caring volunteers like you. If you have a few hours to spare and would like to help plan and execute our Outreach events, please contact Robin McLean at rmclean@jdrf.ca or 519-496-7752.


 Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date with all of the amazing things JDRF is doing!
