The program offers a chance for children ages 4-16 with T1D to inspire and motivate JDRF volunteers and friends, including Walk teams, corporate sponsors, Ride participants, and Gala guests. Their connection to T1D will allow our supporters to see firsthand what life is like with T1D and the importance of finding a cure.
Youth Ambassadors are required to support JDRF One Walk and/or our Kids Walk program as well as participate in at least one stewardship activity per year. As part of the program, your child will help us thank JDRF supporters, meet other children with T1D, and become involved in the community. Volunteers are the driving force behind JDRF—we hope that your family will join this effort!
