Every year the JDRF community rallies together for JDRF One Walk® events that take place across the U.S. and even abroad. Dedicated families, friends and companies raise money to improve the lives of people living with type 1 diabetes (T1D), and while JDRF One Walk is the largest T1D event in the world, it has always been our place to celebrate those living with T1D and the research advancements we’ve all worked together to achieve.
Now more than ever, we need to find creative ways to continue coming together to celebrate our community and move our mission forward. Like many organizations, COVID-19 has challenged us, but we’re taking on this challenge and setting out to do things that have never been done before! For the first time ever, the JDRF community is setting out to walk a collective 1.6 million miles and raise $50 million dollars to find a cure in the JDRF National One Walk®. We were excited to launch integrated fitness tracking for our participants in August, and look forward to sharing our virtual Finish Line Festival slated to open on Nov. 1, but perhaps most exciting of all, we can’t wait to invite you to JDRF’s first ever video game: JDRF One World!
