Creating your own JDRF Community Event is a fun way to make a difference in the fight against type 1 diabetes (T1D). Whether it’s a walk, bowl-a-thon, or whatever you dream up, JDRF pairs our corporate and family communities passion for the cure with grassroots fundraising. With our easy-to-use online system, JDRF can help make your fundraising even more effective, efficient, and fun! Have your friends, family and colleagues support you by registereing and let the fundraising begin.
Please note: Community Events have an online fundraising component, which makes them different than Personal Campaigns and Challenge Events. In order for JDRF to set up this event, we will require additional details. By clicking on the Let's Get Started button below, you will be forwarded to our main website (jdrf.ca) where you can fill out the necessary form. Once we receive your information, JDRF will review your form and contact you within 1 to 2 business days.
We all give to charities that matter to us, and we all give in different ways. Perhaps you have participated in the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes or the Ride for Diabetes Research, or attended a local JDRF Gala. Every year, these events raise millions of dollars to fund world-class diabetes research; but small local events can also be a great way to bring communities together, and the power of even a few people working together is undeniable. Also, local service clubs, youth groups, and other organizations look for community service projects every year. Why not combine their efforts with a proven winner in efficiency and results like JDRF?
Now, more than ever, we are at the threshold of advancements across all areas of diabetes research. We need the combined power of all JDRF events – every dollar makes a difference, and no event is too small. Our cause is urgent. The time for action is now.
JDRF’s goal is to raise funds to provide on going financial support to the researchers who are accelerating the pace of curing, better treating, and preventing diabetes. Your generous support will help us reach this goal.
