JDRF is the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes (T1D) research. JDRF One Walk has one goal: to create a world without type 1 diabetes (T1D). The money raised during this important event supports life-changing breakthroughs in the treatment of type 1 diabetes.
Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It has nothing to do with diet or lifestyle—and it’s serious and stressful to manage. There is nothing you can do to prevent T1D and there is currently no cure.
