WALK-TOBER is here!


Today marks only 15 days until The JDRF One Walk in Atlanta. But don’t worry – there’s still time to register and get involved! We currently have over 250 teams registered and nearly $600,000 raised on our goal of $1.2M. Join us for an inspirational day of community as we walk to turn type one into type none.

A few of the exciting highlights you can look forward to at the JDRF One Walk:

Rufus Bear Likes to Walk Too!


If your child received Rufus (the bear with diabetes) when first diagnosed, bring him or her to the Walk dressed in a fun Halloween costume! Maybe Rufus is a superhero in your child’s eyes, or perhaps he’s a pirate? Prizes will be given out for the following categories: Scariest/Spookiest, Rufus Looks Like Me and Most Creative.

To enter the Rufus Halloween costume contest, stop by the Welcome New Families/JDRF Info tent. Here you can also pick up for #T1DLooksLikeMe Bandana (for all T1D’s) and new family team drawstring bag (for families new to the JDRF One Walk)!

Additional One Walk Activities

This year we have many new enhancements to the One Walk that you won’t want to miss! Don’t forget to check out our Microsoft Gaming Center, the Sparkling Ice Experience as well as the Tie-Dying Station in the Kids Zone.

This is just a taste of what you can expect at this year’s JDRF One Walk. If you have any questions about the event, please contact the JDRF Staff at 404-420-5990. We look forward to seeing you and your family on October 19th!
