Contests & Giveaways

One of the unique aspects of the virtual Walk environment is the element of “gamification”. What this means is that you can explore the virtual Walk environment, earning points by simply just exploring, or by taking actions like watching a video, chatting with a sponsor, putting something in your “backpack” or collecting “JDRF Sneakers”. You can only earn points once for each task. 

Here is the Sneaker (in actual size)!  


Points can be collected between 8amPST/11amEDT and 3pmEST/6pmEDT. There will also be opportunities to collect double or triple points! Watch for broadcast messages popping up to take advantage! 

To keep an eye on your points and see how you match up to other Walkers, check out the Leaderboard. Brought to you by Omnipod, the Leaderboard tracks points in real time showing the top 25 Walkers. The Leaderboard is tied to the name and email that you used to log into virtual Walk environment. Keep an eye on the Leaderboard throughout the day because you could win big with our Walk Day iContent presented by Omnipod.
