Announcing the Aldridge Electric $100K Fundraising Challenge


Aldridge Electric was so inspired by the more than $352,000 raised during the 2017 match campaign, that they will once again support a matching gift fundraising challenge by contributing $100,000 in matching funds for the JDRF Illinois One Walk.

During this challenge, Aldridge Electric will match all donations made to the JDRF Illinois One Walk up to $100K to help us toward our goal of setting a new One Walk 24-hour fundraising record of $400,000!

The fundraising challenge will start at 4 p.m. on Thursday, September 13th and finish at 4 p.m. on Friday, September 14th, 2018. Only online donations made to registered walk participants* at will have the opportunity to be matched.

Spread the word to all of your family and friends that they can double their impact to JDRF and make a donation to your team during this exciting time.

If you don’t know a registered walker and would still like to make a donation to be doubled, please consider a donation to the Illinois Staff One Walk Team.

We are counting on the type 1 diabetes (T1D) community to rally our supporters to help SET A NEW FUNDRAISING RECORD and raise funds towards life-saving T1D research.

A huge thank you to Aldridge Electric for their incredible generosity and unwavering commitment to turning Type One into Type None!

If you have any questions, please contact Janelle Veselik, Development Manager, or 312-423-7192.

*Please note, the match funds will not show up in a walker’s fundraising webpage or count toward fundraising incentives, but will be reflected in their post-Walk team total and count toward any fundraising awards.
