To date, the JDRF One Walk – Madison has raised nearly $270,000 to fund groundbreaking type 1 diabetes research! While this is an amazing achievement, there is still work to do. The JDRF Western Wisconsin Chapter has put together a list of easy ways to continue raising funds now that the Walk is over. Reach your personal goal, while helping us achieve our overall Chapter goal!
Check out some easy ways to continue raising funds:
- Personal Donation – Have you made a personal gift to your JDRF One Walk Team? By showing your potential donors that you are willing to support this cause, it makes them willing to support it, too!
- National Diabetes Awareness Month – November is National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM). Throughout November, the JDRF Western Wisconsin Chapter will be posting shareable info graphics on social media. Use these posts to highlight why type 1 diabetes is an important issue to you and how others can help make a difference.
- Ford Raffle – JDRF has teamed up with Ford Motor Company to raffle off a NEW 2018 Ford Raptor Supercrew. Tickets will be sold through November 13th for $10/ticket. By entering your Walk team name at checkout, your team will be credited with 100% of the funds from your purchase. You MUST enter your JDRF One Walk team name while purchasing tickets or your team will NOT receive credit. Share this opportunity with friends, families, and co-workers!
