Join our team in the fight to help create a world without type 1 diabetes!

Welcome to our JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes team page!

We're helping JDRF create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) where no one has to fear developing this serious autoimmune disease. By joining our Walk to Cure Diabetes team and/or making a donation to JDRF, you can be part of the effort to improve the lives of millions of people affected by T1D.

In T1D, a person's pancreas stops producing insulin, which is essential to the body’s ability to get energy from food. It strikes both children and adults suddenly and is unrelated to diet or lifestyle. Managing T1D requires constant carbohydrate counting, blood-glucose testing, and lifelong dependence on insulin. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure.

JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic research plan to fight T1D. Every donation, big or small, from donors like you, allows JDRF to fund the critical research needed to find a cure.

Will you accept the challenge to make a difference in your community by joining us? Just click “Join This Team” to become a team member and start fundraising. Or click “Donate to This Team” to make a donation.

Thank you for your support!

Thank You

Your contribution and fundraising makes sure those with T1D live healthier lives today, and someday, a life free of T1D. Wyatt, a JDRF Youth Ambassador says:


"The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is one of the best days of the year! It is so much fun and it makes me very happy to see so many people walking to show they care. Thank you to everyone for helping us raise money for the cure...there is nothing more important to me and all those who live with type 1 diabetes."
