JDRF Illinois Type #OneDay NDAM Campaign

November 1 - 30, 2021
12:00 am

The Type #OneDay Campaign is an opportunity to highlight all of those in our Illinois community who are affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). During the month of November, National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM), the JDRF Illinois Chapter will highlight a T1D champion or advocate throughout the month on our social media channels. These individuals will spearhead fundraising for JDRF during the most crucial month of the year and every dollar raised will go to our mission to improve lives today and tomorrow by accelerating life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications.

What is NDAM?

During the month of November, people all over the country team up to spread awareness about diabetes for National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM). The need for awareness and education on type 1 diabetes (T1D) is more important than ever. Who better than the T1D community to make sure that this disease is properly recognized in November and throughout the year?

Staying on top of type 1 diabetes takes the diligence, discipline, and resilience of a champion athlete. Those living with and supporting others with this disease are T1D Champions, all day and every day. Do you know a T1D champion? Share their story this November on social media using #T1DChampion. Don’t forget to follow JDRF to read about other T1D Champions, too!

The champion does not have to have T1D to be a part of this campaign. We want to share all the stories from our T1D community including those who have T1D, care for someone with T1D, love someone with T1D, or have no connection to to T1D, but want to make an impact towards our shared mission of a world without T1D.
