Is the JDRF One Walk a day, a season, or a special moment in time when we come together as a community with a single focus on JDRF’s mission? It’s all those things and more! And it is always special because of how our community rallies together.
This year was no exception. From the kick-off celebration, to the flood of personal emails, calls and texts about our mission, to your fundraising at creative virtual and in-person walks, and your outreach to those newly diagnosed and those living with the disease for many years, we all came together.
A very special thank you to all of our JDRF Illinois One Walk Sponsors who support us every step of the way! Aldridge Electric Inc., Allscripts, NorthShore University HealthSystem, Ford, Land O’Frost and Sloan! We couldn’t do it without you!
Thank you to everyone who joined us over the weekend at Didier Farms, Brookfield Zoo and Peoria Zoo for JDRF Days. Thank you to everyone who walked Your Way and shared your pictures with us on social media. Thank you to those who listened in to our JDRF Illinois Walk Celebration.

Thank you to all the T1D champions, advocates, and supporters who came together and helped make another successful JDRF One Walk season! We won’t stop walking until we reach our goal of a world without type one.
