Make a Difference – Run or Ride with JDRF in 2017!

in , , ,

You may have participated in a JDRF Walk or Gala but do you know that we also have an exciting endurance program? And you do not need to be an elite athlete to participate! ALL skill levels are welcome!

For those who love running, join Team JDRF for the 40th Anniversary of the Detroit Free Press Marathon. Taking place on October 14 & 15, the Detroit Free Press Marathon is the only race event in North America that includes two international border crossings, and the only underwater mile.  Race options include: a full marathon, two half marathons, a 5K, and a marathon relay (a team of five run 3-7 mile legs of the full marathon course – perfect for a group of friends or co-workers).

Prefer hopping on a bike? Secure your spot for one of JDRF’s unforgettable Ride to Cure Diabetes destination experiences.  Riders choose one of our fundraising packages and set their own mileage goal.  There are a variety of distances available, typically ranging from 20 miles up to a century (100 miles).

Both programs offer exclusive benefits like expert coaching and group training, fundraising tools and support, branded apparel, and helping to turn type one into type NONE!
