Meet our 2021 JDRF Champions

in , , ,


JDRF Mid-Atlantic is excited to introduce our JDRF Champions, a group of high school students who are making a direct impact on T1D research through peer-to-peer fundraising for the 2021 JDRF Hope Gala. The JDRF Champions program began in 2019 and gives high school students the opportunity to engage their communities and design fundraising campaigns to support JDRF’s vision of a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D.) These impressive students were nominated by our community for their desire to make a difference and help all people with T1D live healthier, safer lives until there is a cure.
