Athletic Events

Think about crossing the finish line at your favorite athletic challenge or how amazing it feels to achieve a personal goal. Then, use your dedication to inspire your friends and family to donate to your fundraiser. Do what inspires you most—whether that's running, walking, riding, you name it!

Individual and Team Events

You can raise money on your own or make it a team event. For example, run your first 5K and ask your friends, family and co-workers to support you with donations. Or, start a team for your favorite triathlon and motivate each other to push your bodies—and your fundraising—to the limit!

Why Choose JDRF Your Way?

You really can change lives

Living with T1D is a constant balancing act that results in a lot of stress, worry and sleepless nights. The money you raise helps JDRF ease the burden of the disease, until it is no longer a threat.

Our tools make fundraising easy

You'll have access to fundraising tools like a custom fundraising page, a private dashboard to monitor your progress, sample messages to ask for support and other downloadable resources.

There's no registration fee!

Creating a fundraiser is 100% free! Although there is no minimum fundraising requirement, setting a goal for your campaign motivates others to donate to help you reach it.

Raise money on your schedule

No specific time commitment is required. You decide when and how to spend your time—whether it's personalizing your web page, sending emails to friends and family, or planning your fundraising activity.

Not what you are looking for? Join one of JDRF's featured endurance events

Join JDRF riders or runners at one of our six JDRF Ride to Cure Diabetes events or a Team JDRF Challenge event. When you register, you'll become a part of a community who return year after year to take on a physical challenge and motivate each other—all while raising money for T1D research.
