We are the grateful type

Over 4,500 people participated in the JDRF TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes in 2016 in the cities of Montreal and Quebec, helping JDRF Quebec raise close to $460,000 for research!

Our sincere thanks to the team Paul Lepage, Honorary President of the TELUS Walk and to Kasra L. Moozar and Luc Gagnon, co-chairs of the Montreal event, for their commitment to our cause. We would like to highlight the exceptional work of the Sun Life Financial team, led by John Lanni, Christine Potvin and Joel Demontigny. We are also grapeful to Laurie Tobianah, Family Team Committee Chair; Stéphane Lagrange, Corporate Team Committee Chair; and to Sondra Sherman, Chair of the Diabetes Educators Committee.

We are deeply grapeful for the dedication of all the committee members, our ambassadors, Florie, Marco and Juliette, as well as the students and administration of the West Island College for their support year after year.

Bag of Hope

The Bag of Hope, sponsored by Roche Diagnostics (Accu-Chek), is a knapsack providing information to help newly diagnosed families cope with the challenges of living with diabetes. The complimentary bag includes the popular Rufus or Ruby bear, and a selection of informative brochures. Request a Bag of Hope from us or your local diabetes clinic.

Books for Families with Children and Teens Living with Type 1 Diabetes

At most diabetes clinics, you can pick up a free copy of two books made available by JDRF, which aim to inform and educate families about T1D. When a Child has Diabetes is written by Denis Daneman, Marcia Frank, and Kusiel Perlman. Le diabète chez l'enfant et l’adolescent is written by Louis Geoffroy and Monique Gonthier, a pediatrician at CHU Sainte-Justine.

Mentor Program

Our carefully screened mentors want to help others adjust during the emotional process of learning to live with and manage diabetes.

For more information, please contact Ana Isabel Otero.

Whether it's the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes, the Ride for Diabetes Research, or any other JDRF event that takes place during the year, they all require a considerable amount of volunteer help.

This help can be pre-event, working on one of many committees involving recruitment of participants, solicitation of sponsorships for items and services, or day-of event duties such as registration, route supervision, kids activities, barbecue/refreshment area, etc.

Volunteers are the backbone of JDRF and their support is truly appreciated!
