Presented by The JDRF Greater New York City Chapter

We are thrilled to announce the launch of The Power of Progress: Celebrating a Year of T1D Champions Campaign; an exciting fundraising effort that will reflect the tradition and legacy of the wonderful JDRF Galas that we typically hold in person throughout our Greater New York City Chapter. The Power of Progress will be a first of its kind event and our goal is to preserve the beloved elements of our gala programs that you have come to know and love. While we are unable to gather in person, we know that T1D doesn’t stop and neither can we! See how you can get involved below.

  • Why Should I participate and why should I encourage my family and friends to?

    We are creating a campaign for the T1D community that tells stories of inspiration and hope. During this challenging time we are living in, we know that T1D doesn’t stop and neither can we. We want to tell the great stories of our T1D Champions and provide opportunities for the community to give from November to February. We are planning a livestream event that will be both entertaining and inspirational. This is an opportunity to participate in and be a part of a one time unique event experience!

    Do you have to pay to watch the Live Stream Event on February 10th?

    A donation of any amount throughout the Campaign will get you access to the Live Stream event on February 10th. In addition there will be different Virtual Ticket/Table packages that you can purchase if you’d like to bring components of gala to your home! These options will include opportunities to dine in and elements that make you feel like you are in a JDRF ballroom. Stay tuned for more information!
