WOW – we are blown away! Thank you SO much Waterloo region and Guelph 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. If you’d like to re-watch any parts of the House ParT1D, please visit our youtube page.
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, we cannot thank you enough. Together we are changing lives.
If you’d like to share your team’s activity, please share your videos and photos with us by emailing us at [email protected].
Thank you to our local sponsors

Community Engagement Events Committee
The Community Engagement Events Committee helps to plan and execute local outreach events, including Research Nights, Guest Speaker Events, and Family Fun Days. These events are often the first point of contact with JDRF for newly diagnosed families. Committee members can expect 2-5 hours/month, as determined by the committee with the support of the Senior P2P and Community Engagement Coordinator.
Event Day Volunteers
These opportunities are perfect for those who want to contribute but can’t make a long-term commitment. Volunteers are needed for a variety of roles, from set-up to refreshments, registration and greeters.
