2019 Walk Committee
The Cambridge, Guelph and Waterloo Walks would not be possible without the incredible support of our Walk Committee. We’re currently searching for new members from Cambridge and Guelph, to help better represent those communities. The Committee meets January – June, approximately once per month.
2019 Outreach Committee
The Outreach 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. This is a new committee, and 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. Open opportunities include:
August 27, 7:00 – 5:30, Golf Tournament (Kitchener)
September 21, 9:00 – 9:00, Golf Tournament (Burlington)
October 2 & 3, Revolution Ride to Defeat Diabetes (Waterloo)
