Any individual who completes a challenge will be entered into a drawing for a YETI cooler!* Individuals are encouraged to participate in more than one challenge for more entries into the drawing (each challenge completed = an entry into the drawing). A winner will be drawn on Monday, November 1, 2021.**

T1D Trailblazer (August 1 – August 15)

It can be anyone – your endocrinologist, Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE), school nurse, a parent, relative, close friend, anyone! We will be recognizing and honoring these T1D Trailblazers at each of our JDRF Walk Celebrations in October. Deadline to submit a nomination is August 15, 2021.
Nominate a T1D Trailblazer here.
