JDRF’s mission is to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat T1D and its complications. To accomplish this, JDRF has invested more than $2.5 billion in research funding since our inception. We are an organization built on a grassroots model of people connecting in their local communities, collaborating regionally and globally for efficiency and broader fundraising impact, and uniting on a global stage to pool resources, passion, and energy. We collaborate with academic institutions, policymakers, and corporate and industry partners to develop and deliver a pipeline of innovative therapies to people living with T1D. Our staff and volunteers throughout the United States and our five international affiliates are dedicated to advocacy, community engagement, and our vision of a world without T1D.
There are several ways to get involved with JDRF and the T1D community, one being the JDRF One Walk, Arizona on April 20th at Sloan Park. The walk is an exciting day that brings over 5000 people together to know we are not alone and is a chance to show the world that together, we can conquer type 1 diabetes (T1D).
