JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. Our goal is to progressively remove the impact of T1D from people’s lives until we achieve a world without T1D. JDRF collaborates with a wide spectrum of partners and is the only organization with the scientific resources, regulatory influence, and a working plan to end T1D.
As successful as JDRF has been, there is a still a large gap between where we are now and what we need to deliver life-changing therapies in the future. JDRF funds more than $100 million in T1D research each year, and has $530 million currently at work in programs around the world. But it is not enough.
The JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes raises money that allows us to direct even more funding toward T1D research. Sign up for the Ride today and join us in turning Type One into Type None.

Starting and finishing at the Franklin, Marriott, this course follows scenic roads through the Tennessee countryside before entering the Natchez Trace Parkway. This challenging course will offer a choice of distances from 32, 62 and 100 miles. With rolling hills, beautiful vistas and limited commercial traffic, it will be easy to understand why the Trace has been designated as one of the top biking routes in the United States.
