Why T1D & JDRF, & Why Today?
Type 1 diabetes (T1D) is a chronic, life-threatening autoimmune disease currently unpreventable and incurable. 1.6 million Americans are living with T1D; by 2050, that number is expected to increase to 5 million . Today, the financial cost of diabetes, both type 1 and 2, exceeds $245 billion each year. JDRF research drives better treatments and therapies to reduce the financial burden on the healthcare system and employers. The COVID-19 pandemic has put research at risk, and we can’t afford to fall behind.

Challenge employees to reach a shared goal

  • Set a company-wide goal for fundraising and mileage. Work with your JDRF staff partner to identify meaningful goals that help tell your employee engagement/corporate mission story.
  • Enlist support from the senior leaders at your company.
  • Inspire & incentivize your employees to participate by using matches for fundraising and/or mileage achievements.
  • Perfect for: Companies who thrive working together to achieve big goals.

Engage departments/teams in a challenge

  • Opportunity for your organization to mobilize, unify and engage the largest base of employees across multiple locations.
  • Your organization’s different departments/teams can challenge each other in friendly competition through fundraising and mileage goals.
  • Though many teams/departments will set their own goals, consider setting a company-wide goal so that your departments/teams know what to shoot for.
  • Enlist support from department leaders.
  • Consider offering an exciting prize for the winning team that creates excitement in your company culture.
  • Perfect for companies with many departments/teams and revel in competition.

Challenge another company/organization

  • Engage leadership from both organizations in the challenge publicly.
  • Consider offering two incentives, one for your employees and one to excite and inspire the other company.
  • Perfect for: Companies that have been participating as a One Walk team for some time are looking for something new.
