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.
This year’s theme: Dancing through the Decades: Moving Forward as One
While JDRF has been focused on curing type 1 since 1970, we know people right here in the Triangle who were diagnosed before that. We encourage you to dress up and have some fun with this year’s theme. You might choose a decade to commemorate when you were first affected by this disease; you might choose a decade because you love the music…the fashion…the fads…even the hairstyles from that time! Whatever decade (or decades) you choose—it’s time to incorporate this year’s theme into everything you do! We can’t wait to see how you make the theme yours!

*If you were at last year’s walk you’ll remember how inspiring our first ever T1D Parade was, GREAT NEWS we are bringing this back to walk day this year and for years to come. This special portion of our day gives everyone the opportunity to celebrate all our T1D Warriors in a parade through the crowd up to our stage. If you want to participate, please be at the Amphitheatre to line up by 1:45pm, so we can celebrate YOU! (and don’t forget to stop by the information tent when you arrive so you can pick up your Cape, if you have a Type 1 warrior with you)
