The JDRF Kids Walk program is an educational, in-school fundraising program with two goals: 1) to educate students about type 1 and type 2 diabetes and the importance of a healthy lifestyle, and 2) to provide them with an opportunity to make a difference by raising money for type 1 diabetes (T1D) research.
Our program helps to foster an environment of positive character building and community service. Students are recognized with a banner and awards. Your school can earn funds to use for equipment, field trips, books, or whatever your school needs!
It’s FUN, it’s EASY, and it’s EDUCATIONAL! And… it’s all about Kids Helping Kids!
MORE ABOUT KIDS WALK
This year, JDRF Is excited to shine the spotlight on three amazing schools that were fundraising superstars and had lots of fun along the way!
Our first spotlight is Carl A Furr Elementary School. The 2016-2017 school year marks their third year of participating in the JDRF Kids Walk program and they’ve raised a total of $28,520 for T1D research! “Kids not only get a chance to learn about T1D, but they dispel myths and see kids with T1D are just like them. I love the support and the spreading of awareness and passion… a cure will never come unless we have the right people motivated to find it.”
