JDRF One Walk is Less Than One Month Away!

in ,

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 everyone 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! Check out some of the awesome ways the One Walk will be virtual this year!

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, top fundraising recognition with the Fearle$$ 50, a live streaming of the new JDRF Roblox game, and more!

Miles To Mission

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!

In addition to an amazing virtual experience, we also have some prizes and incentives like never before, starting with Western and Central PA’s Fantastic Fridays—where you can win a $100 Amazon gift card every week!


You read that right! Every Friday between now and walk day (November 1st, 2020), for every $50 online donation, your team will be entered to win!
