We are thrilled to introduce the largest JDRF One Walk in history!
As a JDRF community we are committed to walking 1.6 million miles (for the 1.6 million Americans living with T1D) and raising $50 million dollars to commemorate JDRF’s 50 years of progress.
On November 1, 2020, for the first time ever, we will come together as a global community for the One Walk event day! This event will be the largest T1D focused event ever held, and will celebrate and recognize teams and individuals for their fundraising and Miles Toward Mission accomplishments. November 1 is T1D Day and we can think of no better way to celebrate than with our entire JDRF and T1D community!
What’s new this year?
Miles Toward Mission – Strava Integration
Strava, a social-fitness network that tracks walking and running activities, is now integrated with your Participant Center so you can track and log the collective distance your team, your family and community is walking together in pursuit of a world without T1D. Learn how to set up & connect Strava.
Roblox is a global platform where millions of people log in to take part in immersive, user-generated 3D worlds. JDRF will be the first nonprofit to have their own “world” for JDRF supporters to play in during the Finish Line Festival on November 1 and beyond!
Finish Line Festival
On November 1 you can take part in the first-ever virtual finish line celebration! We’ll showcase our local T1D community – sponsors, walkers and teams on our celebration website. You’ll visit our T-shirt Hall of Fame, a virtual Mile of Hope, social walls and top fundraising recognition with the Fearle$$ 50, and a live streaming of the new JDRF Roblox game.
Adopt a Family
Would you like to welcome a team new to One Walk this year? We’ll pair you with a new team to visit – in-person or virtually – to deliver their One Walk Welcome kit. Find out more here.
T-shirt Hall of Fame
Share a photo of yourself, your child, family or team in their team T-shirt to our online gallery! The photos will be included in our Finish Line Festival. Submit a photo of your team T-shirt here.
Save the date for some fall fun on October 10-12! Complete scavenger hunt tasks with your walk team to win cool prizes! Stay tuned for more details.
We’ll mail your One Walk participant T-shirt to your house once you hit a $100 so you can wear your shirt before 11/1!
V1P’s are our fundraising superstars! Reach this milestone to receive your exclusive V1P T-shirt, 2020 V1P medal, and a Mile of Hope Sign delivered to your home!
Bringing Team Village to our Top Teams
For the first time ever, we’ll deliver the Team Village experience to your front door! The top 5 fundraising teams at each Walk site will receive a special delivery for 11/1 so you can celebrate your hard work!
Kick off your Fundraising!
Our friends at Ford want to help you reach your fundraising goals with the “Pick Your Own Wheels” raffle. Tickets are only $10/each and you can get credit for each ticket you sell! The winner of this raffle will receive $35,000 toward the purchase of a new Ford vehicle of their choice! Get started here!
Fundraise through Facebook
Now that fundraising has moved mostly online, it’s time to start thinking of some fun, new ideas to raise money for T1D research. Start by connecting your participant center to your Facebook.
Walk Fundraising Toolkit
This toolkit is designed to help you navigate virtual fundraising and how to raise more funds for research. It’s easily accessed in your participant center once you’re registered for One Walk.
Nothing can stop our fight for a world without T1D. We are stronger together!
