JDRF is made up of a large group of dedicated and active supporters. These supporters are the backbone of the organization and help to raise millions of dollars each year to fund critical type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. From the JDRF Ride to Cure to the JDRF One Walk to JDRF Your Way, there is truly a way for everyone to get involved and make a difference! To assist in meeting their fundraising goals, many of our participants organize their own events/fundraisers. These events include golf outings, brat sales, “JDRF Night” at local eateries, etc. Hosting events such as these is a great fundraising tool and can help you meet your goal with ease!
This summer’s calendar is already filling up with JDRF events and we invite you to attend as many as you are able! These are family-friendly events, where you’ll have the opportunity to connect with others within the T1D community and help to make a difference in the lives of those affected by T1D. Here is a list of upcoming events that will be benefiting JDRF:
- Rock’n Down T1D
- Golf FORE! Diabetes Research
- Dine for Dough
- 4th of July Run/Walk
- Teeing Off for Type 1
- JDRF Cookout For A Cause
- Lake Ripley Ride
- JDRF Charity Softball Tournament
If you are hosting an event such as this, make sure you send in the event details to Jen Allen at the JDRF Western Wisconsin Chapter office! We will post your event on our Facebook page and website events calendar to help spread the word. This can help increase your fundraising totals and allow you to reach your goal even faster!
