About JDRF One Walk™

JDRF One Walk has a single goal: creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). We hope you'll join us this year and help JDRF continue to fund life-changing research for the millions of children, adults and families affected by T1D.

Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which a person's pancreas loses the ability to produce insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. It requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing and lifelong dependence on injected insulin.

With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure. That's why JDRF holds more than 200 Walks across the country every year to raise money for JDRF—the only global organization with a strategic research plan to end T1D.

Each year, JDRF Walks bring together more than 900,000 people who raise more than $68 million for critical T1D research. This success is only possible because of the support, commitment and strength of our community. Please register today.
