Thank You for a Great National One Walk Day!

in ,


Wow! JDRF One Walk Day was an amazing reminder of how many people are dedicated to creating a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D) and that even in the face of a pandemic, there’s nothing we can’t do. Our festival site will be live all month, so you can check back and explore at any time! You can also check out JDRF One World – our very own space within Roblox.

As a chapter we have:

  • Welcomed over 240 amazing teams
  • Walked over 9,000 miles
  • Raised over $440,000 to support life-changing T1D research

Those are some amazing accomplishments that really show the “Power of Us” as we head into National Diabetes Awareness Month. Keep an eye out for exciting updates and challenges related to National Diabetes Awareness Month, like the upcoming World Diabetes Day Global Challenge on November 14th.
