Mission Statement

For over 40 years, JDRF has been a global leader in the search for an end to type 1 diabetes (T1D), through both research funding and advocacy. During that time, we have always talked about a cure as a singular destination: a return to normal physiology. But today, we realize that we are engaged in a process of curing T1D - that a cure is not just a destination but also a journey along a path. And we recognize that a part of our mission must be to help those living with T1D today to live healthier, easier, and safer lives until we arrive at the end of that path.

Description

We are a non-profit fundraising organization. We work with children and adults Type 1 diabetes and their families. We raise funds through our "Hope to Cure Gala" and "OneWalk" in May and June, all of which will help us to turn Type One into Type None. Through our outreach efforts, we are able to connect those newly diagnosed with T1D with families that have experienced the same questions and issues. We provide a "Bag of Hope" to those that are newly diagnosed, which contains helpful information, a meter and a bear, Rufus, who also has diabetes.
