A November to Remember


November was National Diabetes Awareness Month (NDAM), and so many of you got involved in different ways!

We ran our first ever NDAM campaign to highlight some of our local type one diabetics and their story with T1D. Thank you so much to our four fundraisers, the Cottrell Family, the Dilling Family, Will Spencer, and Erik Bilstad for raising a total of almost $6,000 for JDRF Wisconsin! You can read their stories here.

We also want to thank Lili Roden, a Madison-area youth ambassador who has reached out to the governor of Wisconsin since 2015 to recognize both World Diabetes Day and NDAM!


Throughout the month we shared several resources on our Facebook and Instagram pages on T1D, including warning signs and common carb counts. Make sure you’re following our new pages to get our most up-to-date information.

If you’d be interested in being a featured fundraiser during NDAM next year, reach out to Lottie Brooks at LBrooks@jdrf.org.
