The JDRF One Walk is your chance to show the world that together, we can conquer type 1 diabetes (T1D). If you're living with T1D or you love someone living with T1D, you'll likely do just about anything to make life easier.
When you participate in JDRF One Walk, the money you raise will power more research, enable more advocacy and fund more support for the 1.45 million Americans living with T1D. And, you'll have a great time doing it! That's because you'll walk with a committed community that is passionate about doing whatever it takes to live in a world without T1D.
By joining the JDRF One Walk, you'll be part of the lasting footprint we'll make for the T1D community now, and for generations to come. We can't wait for you to join us!
What's new this year?!
Theme: We are incorporating a fun theme this year: Rock Your Socks!! Think all things rock & roll, and of course, fun socks!! Feel free to get creative with this, including your team name, custom team apparel, on-site fundraisers, and more!
T1D Parade: This year, we will be hosting the first ever T1D Parade at all four of our JDRF One Walk locations!! The T1D Parade is a celebration of our T1D warriors - the very reason we walk!! As part of our opening ceremony, every person living with T1D will be invited to be a part of the T1D parade to be celebrated, and a chance for the community to show our T1D warriors and champions that they are not alone as they lead us to the starting line! This is an opportunity you and your loved ones won't want to miss! To sign up to participate, register for the walk today!
Bonfire Custom Apparel: JDRF has partnered with Bonfire to help you design custom One Walk team shirts and raise funds toward your goal at the same time! Bonfire will help you to create a design, launch your t-shirt fundraiser and share the link with your family and friends. They will then print and ship all items purchased directly to your supporters in time for event day - while all funds raised get accredited to your main fundraiser. All of this can be accessed in your participant center! Register today to check it out!
Walk Day Expressway: We are excited to add another element of FUNdraising to walk day! This year, your team will have the opportunity to host an on-site fundraiser on walk day! Your team will reserve a table in the "Walk Day Expressway" ahead of time, and host a fundraising activity on walk day! Here are some examples of what that could look like:
Selling custom team socks/apparel
Games: Pay to play games like musical chairs, balloon pop, etc.. have small prizes to give away to winners
Plant or flower sale
Pay & Pull - Make a donation, pull for a prize
Bake sales (must adhere to Food safety guidelines)
