Meeting your fundraising minimum
JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes is a partnership. Riders commit to raising a minimum dollar amount and in exchange, JDRF provides you with support and coaching in the months leading up to and throughout JDRF Ride weekend. Upon registering, you are asked to select your level of fundraising. (Click here for the fundraising options). Packages start at $2,000.
You must be at least 13 years old and meet your fundraising commitment, in order to participate.
If you are between 13 and 18 years of age, you must have a parental/guardian consent form signed and be accompanied by a participating parent/guardian at all times.
All riders must fully complete the registration form and submit a nonrefundable $100 registration fee. The $100 registration fee must be paid during the registration process via credit card and will be the first donation to your Ride campaign!
Agree to the Rider Contract and Financial Policies & Commitments
Upon completing your registration, you will be asked to take responsibility for the remaining balance of your fundraising minimum, should you not reach it. We commit to providing you with the support and training to prepare you for your Ride weekend. We will uphold our part of the agreement, and it is important to the program that you agree to do the same.
How JDRF helps you reach and exceed your fundraising goal
"One of my biggest trepidations in registering was the fundraising commitment. To my surprise, I raised double the amount I projected. I attribute this success to constant social media pushes that captured the ups and downs of this new experience, help from my local chapter, and personalized donor emails."
- Paige Wesner, New York City/Long Island Chapter
