JDRF One Walk

JDRF One Walk has a single goal: creating a world without Type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. T1D causes the pancreas to stop producing insulin, a hormone essential to turning food into energy. Because of this, people living with T1D must monitor their blood-sugar level, and inject or infuse insulin from a pump daily.  There are currently no methods of prevention and there is no cure. When you join one of the hundreds of JDRF One Walks across the country, the money you raise will support JDRF, the leading global organization funding T1D research. JDRF One Walk is a fun-filled celebration day for the fundraisers, featuring music, kids’ activities, and resources for families living with T1D.
