Learn More about Holding a Kids Walk

Schools participate because it’s FUN, it’s EASY, and it’s EDUCATIONAL!

How Does the Program Work?

  1. Contact your local JDRF chapter to schedule your Kids Walk Kick-Off and celebratory Walk.
  2. JDRF will lead an educational kick-off, teaching students about type 1 and type 2 diabetes, the importance of a healthy diet and exercise, and effective and safe fundraising strategies.
  3. Over a two-week period, students collect donations in various ways: by “selling” JDRF’s signature paper sneakers for a donation, by asking friends and family for their support, and by using our fast and easy online tools!
  4. Two weeks after your kick-off, students submit the funds they’ve raised at a celebratory Walk on your school’s campus.
  5. Wrap up your school’s campaign. Awards, your school banner, and your 10 percent appreciation check arrive within six weeks after the donations are collected.

JDRF provides a simple turn-key program, and your school and students enjoy the many benefits while helping to create a world without T1D!
