About JDRF

JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF's vision is to achieve a world without T1D and to turn type 1 into type none. We are the largest non-profit funder of T1D research in the world, with a mission to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. When you raise funds for research through events like the 2018 Sun Life Walk to Cure Diabetes for JDRF, it enables us to support the best and brightest scientists in the field. 

JDRF strives to help people at all ages and stages of the disease to live better, longer, healthier lives. These people are the reason JDRF exists, and remain at the forefront of everything we do.
