The Countdown to JDRF One Walk Colorado is On!

in

It’s time to lace up your sneakers because JDRF One Walk Colorado returns in-person to Golden at the Jeffco Fairgrounds in just a matter of weeks! Register to join in the fun on Sunday, September 25 for the largest type 1 diabetes (T1D) event in Colorado with thousands of your T1D friends.

For many of the people we love with type 1 diabetes, Walk Day represents the one day of the year that they aren’t different. The one day a year where thousands of people show up to share our favorite message “you are not alone” and celebrate the courage it takes to live every day with T1D.

We can’t wait to see you on Walk Day!
