JDRF Canada Recognizes Volunteers in Celebration of National Volunteer Week 2014

(April 6 - 12, 2014)

From April 6 to 12, JDRF celebrates and recognizes the extraordinary contribution of our volunteers across Canada. This year’s theme is Thank You. This week is set aside each year to honour the extensive commitment and dedication our volunteers demonstrate through their continuous support. We are extremely thankful - because of your hard work JDRF is uniquely positioned to create a future without type 1 diabetes (T1D).

Volunteer work speaks volumes - it changes lives and shapes communities. For 40 years, JDRF has been driven by passionate and dedicated volunteers connected to children, adolescents, and adults with this disease. Your stories and connections inspire us, and fuel JDRF’s unrelenting commitment to keep people with T1D healthy and safe today until we reach our ultimate goal of a cure and universal prevention of T1D.

It is the passion, action and impact of our tremendous volunteers that truly enables the success of JDRF’s national programs, such as our Advocacy initiatives, Outreach programs, Gala events, the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes and the Ride for Diabetes Research.

In 2013, JDRF Canada achieved the following because of our Volunteers’ leadership and support:

Because of you, JDRF is the world’s largest charitable supporter and advocate of T1D research. Together, we will continue to positively impact the lives of over 300,000 Canadians living with T1D and turn type one into type none.

With our sincere appreciation, thank you!
