National JDRF One Walk Day
November 1, 2020
This Fall’s JDRF One Walk will be our first nationwide endeavor and our largest goal yet. Instead of holding walks on separate weekends across the country, we’ll walk together from wherever we are to form the biggest JDRF One Walk this community has ever seen!
NATIONAL JDRF ONE WALK DAY
This year we want to bring together JDRF walkers from all over the country to celebrate what makes the JDRF One Walk so special. We are coming together as one community from across the nation to reach some big goals—collectively walk 1.6 million miles in honor of the 1.6 million people living with T1D and collectively raise $50 million by November 1, 2020 to recognize 50 years of progress and impact. As soon as you register your team, you become a part of this national movement to impact T1D research. On November 1 (National T1Day) we will come together to celebrate our accomplishments at the Finish Line Festival! You don’t want to miss out on being a part of this innovative event.
