We are thrilled to launch our 2021 JDRF One Walk for the Greater New England Chapter! This year’s One Walk will bring the experience right to you. With online activity tracking, fitness and fundraising challenges, and individual Walk Day experiences this fall. You have the chance to make the Walk exactly what works for you.

How You Walk!

With the health and well-being of our community as our top priority, the 2021 Walk will be virtual again this year. The good news is that last year our walkers discovered that going virtual meant they were able to go bigger. Friends and family members from across the country were able to join teams virtually, moving as one, with one mission—a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D).

The JDRF One Walk is a community fundraising effort, driven by individual experiences, that allows participants to select a goal and activity that is meaningful to them and leverage that experience to inspire support from around the world. No matter what you do, we want you to take lots of photos and make new memories! Please make sure you are following state and local regulations regarding social gatherings.

Register today and rally your team!


If you have any questions about our Walk plans this year, please reach out to greaternewengland@jdrf.org.

To ensure your team is as successful as possible this year, we’ve pulled together some resources to help you in your team recruitment, fundraising and overall energy generation about this exciting event!



In addition to the ideas in the Fundraising Tool Kit, there are tons of great ways to fundraise for your JDRF One Walk team from a letter writing campaign to making a unique video of your T1D Champion. The possibilities are endless and there are so many ways to find what works for you and your team.
