Putting an End to T1D, One Step at a Time

The JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes is a fun, happy, healthy, and effective way to show your support for all those living with type 1 diabetes (T1D) and to raise funds for JDRF—the leading global organization focused on T1D research.


Many people think type 1 diabetes can be controlled by insulin. While insulin does keep people with type 1 diabetes alive, it is NOT a cure, just a temporary solution. Insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors help to control blood sugars levels better, but still is not a cure for type 1 diabetes. 

There are many daily challenges for people living with type 1 diabetes, there are many severe complications caused by the disease. Type 1, or juvenile, diabetes, is a devastating disease that affects millions of people--a large and growing percentage of them children.

We are motivated by the courage and perseverance of those facing the everyday challenges of type 1 diabetes - they are the reason we challenge ourselves to give more, to do more, to achieve more. We challenge ourselves to make a real difference in the lives of those with T1D.

Will you accept the challenge to make a difference by walking with us? All we need you to do is click on the "Join this Team" button, make a donation, and begin fundraising. It's simple, fast, and fun! Thank you for your support, and we'll see you virtually on Walk day!


Our Miles Towards Mission

In support of the 1.6 million Americans living with T1D, our miles will be counted towards a collective goal of walking 1.6 million miles.
