JDRF’s Cheer for the Cure is sanctioned by NYSPHSAA.
Cheerleading is recognized as a competitive sport in New York State public schools.

Funds raised from the Cheer for the Cure event will support the JDRF’s research efforts to cure, treat & prevent type 1 diabetes (T1D). T1D is an autoimmune disease. It’s onset has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle, and there is no cure. But with your help, we will be closer to one! JDRF’s researchers are working on incredible projects like the Artificial Pancreas, Encapsulation, Smart Insulin, and other promising therapies!
